Plus, “Play Like Ray” is also taught by Blues Hall Of Fame pianist Bruce Katz.

So, not only are you getting inside the mind of a piano genius but you also have a piano legend guiding you every step of the way.

We created “The Play Like Ray” program after spending literally THOUSANDS of hours on stage, in the rehearsal studio, and in lessons with students.

Fortunately, you won’t have to spend thousands of hours and years of your life.

Watch Bruce’s Amazing Playing On The Mess Around!!

We’ve made the learning process easy for you. So, we put tons of Ray Charles’ piano secrets in the DVDs.

Yes, we share hundreds of our Ray’s closely guarded pro jazz, blues, country, gospel, and soul piano secrets. Speaking of cool things….

(We’ll teach you how to play the full version of “The Mess Around” inside the course.)

Additionally, Bruce Katz has toured with some of the biggest names in blues (Greg Allman, Delbert McClinton, Bo Diddley, Chuck Berry, and others.)

95% of piano players don’t know these techniques. And those that do rarely share them. Bruce is a generous soul!

Cool New Resources Being Released Next Week

As many people know, I like to release free tutorials and resources whenever we release a new product.

It’s just my way of saying thanks and sharing love with the community. So, next week we have another cool sample video we’ll be releasing. It’s one of the most fun videos we’ve created.

ray charles lickI did a voiceover on the new video and I got to pretend I was a radio announcer.

I first played the ‘radio announcer’ when we launched The Breakthrough Blues Method. I also put on my “radio master” hat on The Jazz Improvisation Super System.

Over the years, I’ve heard from so many people that they loved these performances.

So, I reprised my role with a brand new program.

Bruce takes some amazing solos in the video too over some of Ray Charles’ best songs.

Needless to say, I’m super excited to share this new one with you! It may be my best yet. ?

In the meantime jump in and start learning messing around  with the pentatonic and bluesy notes we showed you in the video above.

Remember, you can use these scales and bluesy notes on any style of music. I’ve used them on jazz, blues, country, and even rock gigs too. Super versatile!

If you have questions on this lesson, Ray’s bluesy licks, or about the DVDs please leave a comment below.

You can also or email us using the contact form at the top of the site. I’m always happy to help!
