Ok, three of us studdied this very special TOTM and posted their final out of this lesson (bad!!). Let's get back on our feet and link those files:


Thank you so much Tony for this TOTM. I loved it and learned a lot from it... my own way. And not just purely music, but also about me and about how precious it is to have friends and be part of a community to help you grow... Give and receive.

you stopped me dead in my tracks! you understand that saying?

i was busy doing stuff and put this on and stopped everything sat down and just listened to it.

this could have been a solo piece in a concert, whatever. you should be extremely proud of yourself. you just created a great work of art as far as i'm concerned.

that made my night.

Good Lord ! That is really something. I think that unless you are able to play something entirely on your own, whether it be with 2 or with 4 mallets, you can't say that you can really play vibes. Personally, when I try something in that style, I get discouraged. I always need a crutch, like Band in a Box, and that's bad. What amazes me most, Dimitris, is your time. You keep it rock-steady throughout, you never hesitate on your phrases, it swings, and it goes on for almost seven minutes without a hitch. Hats off to you, Dimitris !

Here my first final for a TOTM. Maybe a little long, and after Dim's one that's tough, but anyway here it is, the head is a composition of mine, called "Blues Ba" which I wrote 2 years ago for guitar but fits with vibes (I think...).
Comments and critics more than welcome !

Thanks for your support. And listening back to my post I agree with you, there are some spots where my playing is somewhat messy, I have to focus on that - Anyway, work in progress....
It's what I like here, others players's help !
