Hello Jordan! sometimes my rock band picks songs originally without keyboards like RHCP or ACDC and it just feels like there's no room for keyboard. Do you have any advice on how should I play such songs or should we pick something else. Thanks

Hi Jordan, I'm new here and also I'm GeoShred User. Well, GeoShred is not a keyboard nor a guitar, I need a guide to be able to apply lessons and techniques on GeoShred, the fingering is the first matter and also the way to get good sound out of it.

Hello Jordan, I was wondering if you have the score for "Interstices" to share with us. I believe it is a wonderful song with a lot of cool exercises for your JROC students to learn. Thank you in advance. Raúl.

I have been looking through the Circle of Inversions Etude and I am having trouble with the suggested fingering. Mostly bars 12 and 13, playing all black keys, but also other fingering in bars 2,5,7 and 24... any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

I travel occasionally and when I do I have no way to practice with a weighted 88 note keyboard, especially with good action as it would need to be light-weight and compact. Any ideas? (Two 44 note keyboards that could be joined together?) Thanks :)

Hey Jordan! Just purchased a subscription to the JROC and I'm loving it so far!!! Great Job. I know this defeats the point of 'Jordans Riffs' but would you ever release your adaptations on riffs from say Awake or Images and Words?

Hi Jordan, question comes from far away (Brazil). I`m having a hard time performing arpeggios with high jumps like when you have to pass your thumb under other fingers to reach it. What type of exercise would you recommend to improve that? Thank you!

When you write, either with Dream Theater or on your own, do you go about writing the songs in chronological order from start to finish, or do you write it one section at a time and then connect the pieces together, or is it some other process?

Hi there Jordan! I was wondering, is there any chance of an sheet album release for the Astonishing ? I mean the keyboard part, like there was for the Dramatic turn of events. I really enjoyed that album, listening ant covering it.

Hi Jordan if it is possible I'd like an advise from you. I'm composing ideas but i always ended up with compositions without clear structures. The song continues to move forward and forward and I can’t find a good connection for example a chorus
