  2. I ABSOLUTELY recommend you “MASTER” the first two chapters on this DVD.

    1. Introduction to Neo-Soul Concepts
    2. Theory of Neo-Soul

    To some it may be a review, others it will be new, or in my case it will be a clarification. Whatever level you are, it is a requirement that you get the first two sections down and be able to understand it quickly and completely. (In my humble opinion)

    Everything else is will be just icing on the cake and will make much better sense. If you don’t understand the first two sections, it will be difficult to progress.

    Note that Jamal explains this Neo-Soul stuff very well and provides some simple examples in the beginning two chapters, BUT it might still be unclear to some about what exactly Jamal is doing. I had a couple of questions myself and after careful review multiple times and consulting another book I had, I managed to put the pieces together and understand. I now GET IT PERFECTLY!

    If after reviewing the first two chapters you do not understand what he is talking about, please feel free to shoot me an email with any specific questions you may have. The key to the first two chapters is understanding the relationship between the scales, modes, and minor 9s that that are specific to Neo-Soul grooves.

    Once you get this basic Neo-Soul foundation into your head that Jamal talks about, you literally will be playing NONSTOP all day long creating all sorts of Neo-Soul songs. This stuff is incredibly easy and FUN FUN FUN, once you get your head wrapped around it.

    I can’t stress enough the importance of this DVD to get one started in Neo-Soul or to continue with whatever Neo-Soul education you may already have. Just be prepared to do some thinking with this stuff.

    Happy Neo-Soul Keyboarding!

    Now back to jamming on some minor 9s!

  3. The Beat Making videos with Boonie Mayfield are fantastic. He has some great advice about building drum grooves for Neo-Soul. I particularly liked his tips on velocity and his breakdown of the different drum type sounds that are best used for Neo-Soul. I was not expecting such quality bonus material. This actually made me hop on over to Boonie Mayfield’s Youtube channel at to check out more of this stuff.
