Missing Chords?

I don't think I'm the only one with this problem so I'll just say it. I learned some basic music reading when I was 10 or 11 when I was learning to play the organ (short lived) and I am used to seeing the chords written above the stanza. Without them how are we supposed to know what they are? If makes it more difficult to improvise a chord if you don't know what it is. Is there a particular reason you didn't place them in your books?

I think most of us can "feel" a change when the…

Learning Music?

Hi Brad and pan family,

As you being a teacher, I am interested in your approach to teaching someone the pan. I have been playing for about 5 years now. I do fine and have received many call-backs. (I'll load a video some day) My problem is I don't actually know music, as in theory. I can read the treble clef somewhat. I learned as a child of 9-11 to play the organ. I consider my self a parrot. I can imitate the music very well…

Pan Kat

Alternate Mode Pan KAT

Up for auction is a Pan KAT Midi Steel Drum that I used to play reggae tunes.  I have had the Pan KAT for 10 + years but really only used it for about a year to play solo steel drum and some Jimmy Buffett tunes for friends (I am a guitar player).  The original unit cost about $1,800 without the case and I am offering it up for $825 plus shipping.  I used an older Roland MIDI sampler (not included) for the steel drum sounds but IndigiSounds (YouTube link…

Advanced pan technique

So there are lots of books and videos on how to play pan - all the ones I've seen are for beginners. Anybody know of Advanced technique books? I see LiamTteague does a beginner book- I would love for him to do one for more advanced players.
