John McLaughlin – The Gateway to Rhythm

Konokol is the universal system of mastering rhythm without drums. Guitar legend John McLaughlin, who has advocated this system of learning rhythm for over 30 years, brings it all together with Konokol master Selvaganesh Vinayakram, one of the foremost percussionists from India. Divided into six chapters, the student moves from basic understanding of rhythm into the wonderful world of improvisation.
Exercises are explained and demonstrated followed by improvisations which include all the exercise material of that particular chapter. You will learn through this course how to improvise rhythmically and how this system can help in your compositions. Following this, John McLaughlin explains and demonstrates on the guitar the benefit Konokol has had on his improvisations, and its usefulness in his compositions over the past 30 years.

    I think there is easy acces to education. Course, if you want to study in berklee college, well….it will be a little expensive..but if people can pay their internet connection, they can pay a good teacher too, or a dvd, dont you think?
    Think it this way. If you dont pay to a teacher, o dont buy his dvd (most dvds requires years of knowledge, and a lot of time and money to make it)…there will be less teachers, or poor quality dvds or methods out there…because teachers will have to drive taxis or do office work to pay his bills, and will have no time and mastery to do great lessons anymore…
    So, a dvd isnt expensive. A teacher isnt expensive. An iPAD is expensive, and people buy it just for fun. I have no problem to pay for knowladge, do you? So, pay for a good music method will Keep the teachers alive, making great books and music.
