When Sting accidentally sat on the piano during the recording of Roxanne, he knew it sounded cool...but did he know what it was called? Let's butt right in there and figure it out!

In order to REALLY get to know a tune (a song), you don't only have to play it in all of the keys, but you can also THINK it in all of the keys. This is next level stuff, and I hope you have fun taking this step. If you'd like to donate to my channel, please do so here: https://paypal.me/aimn
I know I'm not the only one who has been stiffed by people who can definitely afford to pay. Just a little humorous public service announcement, cautioning you to be careful about taking gigs from the super wealthy, super frugal client. I'd love to read about your experiences if you care to share! Thanks to Joshua Payne Orchestra for the backing track!
"On The Fly" is an expression, meaning, to do something quickly, without much time for preparation or thought. Sometimes we have to write charts (a term that jazz players use instead of "sheet music") very quickly and under odd circumstances. Here is how I do that!
I grew up in Weaverville, a small gold rush town in Northern California. In late July, The Carr Fire threatened my town, and destroyed much of Trinity and Shasta Counties. There were 36,000 evacuations, 1,604 buildings lost, 8 lives taken, and much hope lost. My heart is in that place, and with those wonderful people who though they have lost much, still have each other and their memories. Photographs, taken by Jeff Dye in 2010, when the oaks and manzanitas were green and thriving, the lake was surrounded with lush forest, and the remnants of the mining town "Old Shasta" was painted with a beautiful backdrop of green and blossoms.
