Hey Markus and skotrock,
If you guys are taking notes from Mark Levy's recordings would you be so kind as to share them with us here?  It would be great to be able to do a search for specific tunes, concepts, etc., that are discussed in these recording.  I've wanted to do that, but  it might be a loooong time before I get around to it.
Thanks!
--Paul

Hi Paul,
I am happy to share my notes but it is far too much for one or two people.
It would be nice to have a place here where people who listen to the tapes can leave notes on different subject discussed in Marks Levy's tapes.

Is that an Idea?

Markus

I believe that Mark details some of the material in one of the files on the idisk site.  Maybe this one:

$readmefirst v20.htm


http://idisk.mac.com/deparko-Public?view=web

I can't link the file because the exact url is too large, but look for that file.

Might at least get you started.  These recordings are the Rosetta Stone.  Believe me, I have listened to those recordings to the point of memorizing every breath.

Thank you JeffStocksMusic for mentioning the $readmefirst v20.htm
That is a great start!

It would be nice if - over time - this overview would be enriched by others working with the tape:

Maybe somebody transcribed something that Ted played during the lesson. Former students could clarify/explain. What assignments did Ted give to OTHER students on a certain subject discussed on the Mark Levy tapes etc..
I am aware that a lot of that information is already present in the forum (so crosslinks to material in the forum would be great) but for me - I never had lessons from Ted or met him (yet I call him Ted...hmmm) - those lessons on the tapes are a very direct and organic way to work with all that insight and wisdom Ted shared (shares) with us.

Thank you
Markus

o' course, good basic outline in readme!...cool  ; )>  (treasure!)
"great idea to outline, if not notate...."---notate had meant maybe further outline; but, yea, any/all of us could benefit from doing transcription!

maybe we could do some sheets, of some 'more easily' translatable parts (positions or voicing groups mentioned) --------'shapes' w/staff, staff only, & shapes only, whatever applies

what software or templates might be made standard & utitlized...
I've heard of finale, sibelius etc...........recommendations?; I'm after some opinions ttyl

I use Sibelius 5.0 and love it, pretty easy to get started and make some professional looking sheets.  I use it for the lead sheets that I post on this site.  I'd recommend it.
I understand the Finale has a bigger learning curve and is less intuitive, or user-friendly.

In lesson March 22nd 1993 one topic is - among others - modulation.
Mr. Greene shows a beautiful way to modulate one half tone up using the pivot chord IVm of the old key being the IIIm of the new key.
If you listen to the tape at about 00:08:00 Mr. Greene plays an example modulating from D to Eb ... with beautiful everything.

I use the key of C for the general formula instead of roman numerics because I find it awkward to write down progressions WITH modulations in roman numerics (with the internetbrowser). Modulating from C to Db (as a general example) could be done like this:

Cmaj7 - Fm7- I Bbm7 - Eb7 Eb7alt I Ebm7 Fm7 Gbmaj7 Gdim I Ab7sus4 - Ab7 - I Dbmaj7...


I will give Sibelius a try since i am not happy with Finale.

Liebe Grüße
Markus
