Two Handfuls!
This is a very rich course. It can be overwhelming at times, but you quickly learn that these alterations are amazingly beautiful. It is extremely valuable to become familiar with the contents of this course so that when the opportunity calls, you can come back to this course to pick and choose the combination of alterations that suits your taste. I found the AB exercises most challenging but you quickly see the benefits, especially with respect to uses within the various chord progressions like the II-V-I. Thank you, John.
Challenging.
Deep and thorough dive into dominant voicing.
Things are heating up... ; )
Now I have enough to practice until the day I die... Hopefully I'll have time to learn a song or two.. LOL
Great stuff
Thank You John for the wonderful lessons
Rigorous , challenging but doable
John is an excellent teacher and leaves no stones unturned. His approach provides a thorough grounding for what lies ahead.
