Loved the tunes
I would encourage everyone to practice with the tunes. It really helps get the chords in your fingers
Dominant 7 chords, inversions and progressions
More foundational info in review of what I learned many years ago. I followed along well, and I'm motivated to apply to my playing. I can't wait to apply to actual tunes!
Lightbulb moments
Struggled for year with the idea of dominant 7th chords - used to think it was just something related to C major chords. I'm really pleased that I can now find dominant 7th chords in all the major keys. The short melodies for practice where useful especially using the inversions. The Smartsheet was incredibly helpful especially as I was always able to download the backing tracks on my tablet - must contact support to help with this.
