I think of this as my thesis for a fantasy college course, Advanced Danology

"Color your chords like the masters of rock, blues, R&B, new age and jazz piano! With advice on voicing, technique, feel and other topics, you'll learn how to cop the chordal styles of Ray Charles, Elton John, Jerry Lee Lewis, Thelonious Monk, and many more!"
