Overall, excellent product, highly recommended. This DVD is brilliant!
I really see it as fantastic new input for rhythmic variation in my melodies. Having been a fan John McLaughlin since the beginning I really appreciate he and Selva putting this together. Shanti Paul thanks for this transcription as I was going to start some of this myself just for practice. You saved me hours! PS my DVD always skips back to the menu — no real issue but not sure it wa meant to be set up that way. It was nice to hear some old Mahavishnu too. This is all very deeply appreciated.
Best wishes and good playing to you all from Como Italy. Muchas gracias por el interes que usted tiene en la musica y en la padagogia de la misma. Sus comentarios y sus aportes musicales dia a dia nos van iluminando poco a poco en el arduo mundo y complejo de la musica.
Thank You! John and Selva for the Konokol video. I bought two! One for me and one to give to a friend. It has opened up a whole new universe for me and totally shifted my mind with regard to rhythm. Very Cool. Shanti for the transcriptions. Love, Peace and Happiness be with you, my friends. A big Hug from Porto Alegre,Brasil. Thank you for the transcriptions and for the great DVD. You have enriched my musical life profoundly!
This was one of the main flaws in the DVD and now it is patched up so well done. The konokol system has so many applications. It can be easily adapted to reading music which is very liberating and much easier to use than the traditional counting system. Counting with numbers engages a part of the brain which is inherently non-musical and distracting, whereas the konokol system is much more natural and fits seamlessly in with playing.
Thank you very much for the transcriptions, Shanti and John! The DVD is great, with the transcriptions is even better! I cant download the Konokol pdfs, as I need to login with a password…can anybody help me? Transcription would be a huge help! Thank you for your work and for making me discover carnatic artists like Sevaganesh! I also cant download the Konokol pdfs, as I need to login with a password…can anybody help me?

Following this, John McLaughlin explains and demonstrates on the guitar the benefit Konokol has had on his improvisations, and its usefulness in his compositions over the past 30 years.
