The main body of the LCC and its practical application, including all 4 published versions of Book 1 with their inserts: the 1959 tan cover; the 1959 light green cover Japanese edition; the 1970‘s white cover, which adds an illustrated River Trip to the 1959 edition, and the currently available Fourth Edition, 2001.

The authorization code is the first word on Page 198 of the Fourth Edition of the LCCTO.

An open letter from Alice Russell. June 21, 2011, Brookline, Massachusetts. 1. DO NOT make insulting, mean spirited remarks about anyone or their work; there are a plethora of sites where you can rant unfettered. If you attack someone personally, your comments will be removed. You can post it, but I'm not paying for it. Go elsewhere, and let those artists who are actually interested in discussion and learning have the floor. 2. There will be NO posting of or links to copyrighted material without permission of the copyright owner. That's the law. And if you respect the work of people who make meaningful contributions, you should have no problem following this policy. 3. I appreciate many of the postings from so many of you. Please don't feel you have to spend your time "defending" the LCC to those who come here with the express purpose of disproving it. George worked for decades to disprove it himself; if you know his music, there's no question that it has gravity. And a final word: George was famous for his refusal to lower his standards in all areas of his life, no matter the cost. He twice refused concerts of his music at Lincoln Center Jazz because of their early position on what was authentically jazz. So save any speculation about the level of him as an artist and a man. The quotes on our websites were not written by George; they were written by critics/writers/scholars/fans over many years. Sincerely, Alice

Hello everyone:
I just received my copy of the Lydain Chromatic Concept book. I'm happy to know that there is a forum to help me understand and apply the Concept in my playing.
Are there any pointers that you can suggest a newbie to do to help him along the way.
Thanks
John

What instrument do you play? How long have you been playing? Do you play jazz?

Hello Sandy:
I'm so happy that you replied to my post. I play a flute and yes I study Jazz. I've been playing the flute over 5 years. My goal is to become a Flautist amongst flute players.
Thanks

Hi John,
For starters, be patient. As you can deduce from skimming the book, there is much work to be done. In addition to practicing the material on your instrument it is important to play it on piano so you can hear the various vertical entities the LCC presents. You don’t necessarily need ‘chops’ on piano at all. Once you start learning the various scales on flute you could play chords on the piano and use the sustain pedal to ‘hold’ them. Have you ever used Band-In-a-Box software? With this software you can easily program any chord sequence you like or just vamp one chord. When you start to get more comfortable with the scales you could mute the chordal instruments and just practice with bass and drums.
The LCC book has many excellent exercises and tests to help you along. You are free to write pieces based on what you are learning. Have a happy journey!
Sandy
