Loved the Videos, but...
Jonny does his usual great job in the teaching videos. However I found the Smartsheet (which is the only documentation you can access without paying) less than satisfactory. it only provides a "final version" of the song--no earlier versions to build on, and no solo transcription.
Nice course
Good info, progresses a little too fast. Unfortunately the smartsheets don't work correctly
Loved it
I enjoyed the structure of the course which helped me diving into learning lead sheets and creating my own arrangements.
Amazingly Fun and Useful!
Great lesson for people who haven't really learned that much songs. It's great fun to play the tune and not too hard for newbies to be turned off. Looking really forward to working on the harder version of the song now.
Excellent Lead Sheet Course
This is an excellent beginner’s Lead Sheet course. Jonny takes you through a series of lessons that are thoughtfully laid out. They build on each other in bite size pieces, they’re easy to understand and Jonny has you playing musically from the start. This is my very first standard that I can proudly add to my repertoire. Looking forward to learning much more with this leaning track….thank you!
