Hello, this is my first post so if it's not in the right place, don't hesitate to move it. Several months ago I ran into a YouTube instructional video called "improvising over Gold Rush/ Salt Creek/ Red Haired Boy," by Jeff Jenkins. That video really helped me catch some of the basics about improvisation, so I went on a hunt to find Jeff Jenking videos. Unfortunately, there are very few to be found and the one I found is the only instructional video of his I can find. Does anyone here know anything about him?
He appears to have dropped off the map. That video was from 2010, if my memory is correct, so perhaps he taught for a while and quit the online thing? Is he a member here? Does anyone know how to contact him? Any info would be greatly appreciated, even if it's just that he would like to remain anonymous.
Thanks for your time, Hartley Wootton
Jeff Jenkins does appear to be a member here. You can PM him and see if he ever posted any more instructional videos.
To do a member search, look on the left side and under More, click on Member Search. Type his first and last name in the appropriate boxes and hit search. That will bring up his home page and you can PM (private message) him from there. PM is found under member's name and "contact (member). Just click on that and send him a PM. If he isn't on the Hangout at the time you message him, the message will be sent to his e-mail after 15 minutes.
Hope he contacts you and you find out what you need to know.
Thanks for the posts, and Rick, thank you especially for the tab and audio you sent. By the way, whose playing and tabulature is that? Is it yours? Was it Jeff Jenkens' material. Just curious whose great licks those are. Thanks again so much. Hartley Wootton
PS Those are not the licks in the video I found. What video did those come from? Do you have a link to it that you could send along? Thanks again.
