Drop 2 dom 7
The course is fine, but I still have a problem with the use of enharmonic notes being used on the keyboard simulation when the key signatures show different notes. For example, if there is a C# in the key signature, the keyboard often shows Db. I think that would be very confusing for some. And the instructor is saying C#, even though the keyboard is labeled a Db.
Excellent course!
I was so happy and amazed how professor John Proulx was teaching with such enthusiasm. Thank you so much for the explanation. This course is very informative and help me improve my understanding and techniques. Thank you.
