    I've got a Roland PMA-5. While it's not much by way of studio recording, it's a fantastic practice tool. I'll be making and posting up bunch of straight 4/4 loops of different keys, but if anyone has a request, post it up here and I'll get you a loopable mp3 of something.

    So if you've ever thought "I'd really like to try writing something in C m7 sus4", let me know and I'll accomodate you. I use them to get the hang of soloing over uncommon (and just plain fun) keys.

    he means just programming simple cohrd progressions to solo over that are different and unique. I got a request.. Do a cool minor progression out of like, Gminor and use some big jazz chords.

    Actually it's drums & bass, with the key of your choice. :D I'll post up a sample tonight (it's 7am and I'm awaiting brewing coffee right now)

    Gm(add9add11add13) to an Ebmaj7 to an Am7(add9add11), over a funk bassline in 8th note sextuplets.

    An Am7 add9 a11 is just a Am11. Unless you specify no 11 or 9 (or modify them) its assumed they're part of the chord when you say 11 ;p

    So you want a GmAdd9/11/13 to a EbMaj7 to a Am11.

    You could also say Gm13(No 7) if you watned, too ;p

    So that gives us a Gm13(no 7), EbMaj7 Am11 progression..
    So Vi-IV-Vii progression in Bb Major ;p

    Once you break it down thats actually pretty simple lol

    You're probably right :) It's been years since I was in music theory class. My mind might not remember all of it, but I'm glad my fingers still do :)
