I have been playing the changes of Just In Time, lately. And I always think in terms of solo playing and holding four mallets. When you're playing lots of notes, you don't need chords. At this tempo, I'm mostly playing 8 notes in a bar. I…

Gary sent me this lesson to post on the site. It's a great lesson on solo playing. (I think part 2 is on the way) I think it's really incredible that he is taking the time to do this for us! - Tony Miceli
