hi my name is Tom and in this video I'm going to be reviewing Tom quails diminished scale harmony and application lesson package this is an instructional package aimed at guitar players that comes in the form of a digital download so you purchase it from Tom's website which I'll go through in a minute and you download it as a zip file unzip it and all the lesson contents are included there so to get to this you need to go to Tom quails website which is all the W's dot Tom
00:37
quail that's qu a yle code at UK and then forward slash lessons and it's diminished scale harmony and application at the moment is the second one down but I'm sure there's going to be plenty more to follow the link for that is also in the description so this package is built from lots of different components the core features of which fall in the form of the full HD videos that are included there's a 30 minute lesson explanation which has got Tom talking to the camera explaining what the diminished scale is how to use
01:10
it where to use it how it's built up so that's 30 minutes long and comes with an accompanying 15 page PDF which flushes out some of the details in a bit more depth and it's got some scale diagrams for you there and the second video is 20 minutes long again Full HD which explains ten great licks you can build from this scale they're explained their play faster play slow and they're broken down and there's a PDF that comes with that with all ten licks transcribed the
01:43
package also contains ten backing tracks and again it's outlined how to use the diminished scale so you can make use of it over these backing tracks there's ten included they range from basic vamps to moving progressions and this also some sample solos from Tom included within within that as mp3 form now this packs really aimed at players who may be pushing the sort of intermediate advanced level of playing
02:16
that want to get a bit more creative with their phrasing and their note choices so perhaps if you're stuck in in simple box shapes and you want to create a more outside sound a package like this is is really aimed at you again the word fusions used and the whole series or sorry this this video package is part of a greater series called fusion essentials and the clue their fusion certainly indicates the kind of sound
02:46
you can affect with the techniques you'll pick up from these packs so anyone who wants to create a more jazzy approach to their rough flicks or expand their vocabulary even more or just anyone who wants to pursue further on the guitar and explore new avenues and this package is aimed at you it has got some high-level concepts in there which is why I mentioned the sort of advanced level of playing but really if you're just an intermediate player you can certainly work through this but it might you know you might have to reread
03:16
certain things to let the concept sink in now I purchased this package because I sort of got in a bit of a rip with my playing I was stuck in buck shapes nothing I was playing was exciting me I just felt like I was recycling old licks over and over again now I'm sure me like many other people who'll be watching this video who've seen Tom Quayle play before I've been absolutely blown away by his note choices his phrasing his fretboard kirbridge he's just general musicianship
03:49
on the instrument and even when he's doing you know incredibly fast or fluid lines everything still sounds good it never sounds sort of generic or boring everything sounds interesting so after watching this sort of example or preview video that Tom posted I thought I'd check this out and I was pleasantly surprised obviously there's a list of what the lesson package contains before you download it but it's way more
04:19
in-depth than I thought it would be and for someone like me who I've studied music and full time or had studied music full-time for about five years and I consider myself a student of music I'm not just interested in learning cool licks I have to know why they work and how they work I'm a bit of a theory nerd and I'd advise a lot of people to try and be theory nerds and if you are interested in the mechanics of music then this certainly just served us you
04:51
know fill that need I found that similar licks when all some of the concepts went over my head initially and it took me a little while to incorporate them into my harmonic vocabulary because again the some of the examples presented a very exotic sounding or outside sounding and if you're used to sticking in the pentatonic box shapes then and perhaps it's going to send sound alien to you but all of the lick sound fresh and exciting and it's very rare that I'll
05:25
pick up a lesson package or a guitar magazine or something that have got like a list of ten great licks or the 10 best licks or 50 great blues licks and find anything that's interesting but every single one of these ten licks I found worth worth learning and not only are they worth learning but you're going to be learning about the scale and the the application of it as you go because they're all explained in detail why they work etc so I thought this
05:56
lesson was was fantastic it certainly everything's laid up incredibly logically personally I I like to some people like to read when they're studying they might like to go through written material I prefer to have someone talking at me and telling me what to do and that usually helps things sit in better but whatever your learning needs they're both catered for because the PDF is incredibly in-depth 15 page
06:28
PDF with diagrams of the neck and the fretboard which is perfect for that kind of approach and also it's got everything explained with a human being sat there talking to you so everything was incredibly in-depth the the topic was covered in great detail all the app different applications that I can possibly use this scale in were covered and covered in a way that left nothing sort of DMS demystified everything and no point was
06:59
I sort of scratching my head because if I if I was then you know two seconds like any of my questions were answered so I thought this was a great great lesson package I certainly had a lot of fun working through it and I picked up a lot of great great ideas along the way I've also filmed a sort of demo solo of me playing over one of the backing tracks that's included it's only a short video but because the backing tracks are sort of full-length three four minutes three four minutes each and but yeah
07:31
it's a short example of that and it's me playing over one of the backing tracks utilizing the concepts that I gained in this lesson you can check that video here and again this was film sort of after a month on and off with this lesson working on it every other evening or so or checking out those ideas like that so yeah I thought it was a great package I was I knew obviously tom was a fantastic play that that much is apparent from watching ten seconds of a video of his
08:01
on YouTube but he can certainly back up that stuff for a teaching standpoint and not only the practical side but the theory side too which is which is very important to me like I mentioned before the whole lessons incredibly well put together but the real standout for me were the ten licks that were featured the whole lesson like the the scale and the harmony and and how to apply the scale is delivered in in such depth and but
08:34
never before have I seen an example you know examples of how to use a scale or example licks like this in similar lessons that have been so applicable and so worth learning every single one of them you could you know turn heads with they don't sound boring they don't sound generic they all really get my ears excited and so every single one of those licks is worth learning and the accompanying video PDF will make sure
09:05
that you a understand how to play them be understanding why you should want to play them I may have mentioned before and but this package is $25 all the lesson packages on Tom's website are in US currency and in British pounds that translates to about 16 pounds or it did just before I started filming this video and as far as value for money is concerned I think that's incredible value and certainly where I live even if you're moving
09:37
closer to London or really anywhere in the country you're going to be looking at sort of 20 quid for a one to one lesson for an hour and now you're basically getting just just ever so slightly under an owl's with video tutorials anyway for less than that but the accompanying PDFs and mp3 backing tracks give you something to take away from it also so if you think of it in terms of that which is what I always do when I'm buying packages like this so
10:07
we're sort of equated to you know the content included versus how you know how much I can get out of it in the long term and how much it would cost to take one-to-one lessons with the average Joe yeah bearing in mind 20 quid we'll get you a guitar player like me rather than a guitar teacher like Tom but but yeah the value isn't incredibly good it really doesn't break the bank and you get you know like I say it's a 500 mega node you get a serious amount
10:39
of data for that and for that investment so the value for money is is sound so to sum up I think this is an absolutely fantastic lesson package it's certainly worth checking out if you want to improve as an improviser or improve your harmonic and melodic here and I can't recommend it highly enough to be honest of all the packages I've bought so far which is four from Tom's website this is my favorite I'm currently actually downloading a fifth one which
11:12
is the fusion Blues playing so maybe that will overtake it but this one in terms of sheer breaking out the box thinking and introducing new ideas is absolutely fantastic I can't recommend it you any higher so if you're a guitar player you're stuck in a rut and you perhaps can't get access to a guitar teacher in your area or you're just a big fan of the heat learning thing I seriously advise sticking and taking some money down for it I hope this has
11:42
been useful and I really really enjoyed this lesson and hopefully by spreading the word some some other people will too again I've done a video which is just me using some of the ideas that I gained from the lesson over one of the backing tracks which you can check out as well but yeah it's it's a fantastic package and I think you'll all enjoy it thanks very much for watching
