ITF/Paul the Trombonist

Post by Gribnes » Thu Jul 12, 2018 5:38 am

Delayed by unfortunate AV hiccups Paul dove into his presentation at fast talking, breakneck speed. He offered some clever and encouraging ideas on how to begin the process of learning to improvise. What eventually was revealed was a slick commercial for Ginsu knives only for ITF participants. What he offered was a list of 'free' teachings that in the end was tied to nearly $1K of private/Skype lessons. The deflation in the room was palpable. If he only soft pedaled the used car sales approach he might have appeared to be teaching. This was a Cal Worthington moment...

What does that guy actually do other than make Youtube videos? I'm sure he is a good player, but there are thousands of good players out there.

I will say that his interviews with famous players have been an enormous resource, and that anybody that does that much work still needs to eat and pay rent.
