WOW! this make me happy!
This arrangement is just perfect. The octave grooves in the left hand that line with the right hand lines sound sweet and nasty👌I love the combination of the C minor and C major blues scales and the double slides …..it’ sounds and feels great. I’m finding the more I practice the sections and connecting to the next, the more refreshed you feel .
Very challenging but rewarding
Learning different playing techniques and challenging myself to stretch my playing abilities
Well: Fun and challenging
still some practising necessary after completing the course.......better to play without the sheets.....
