I have a lot of fun and many ideas how to practice
Examples for solo encourage me to try first steps in improvisation
Beautiful course!
Great melody, chords, and solo. Thank you so much professor John Proulx for this course. I enjoyed the course. Thank you.
Just right for my skill level
John does a great job of tailoring this course for my skill level. The intermediate level offers me challenges while giving me reasonable hope that I can complete it. After working on this song a little every day for a month, I was able to play it, (except for the solo) with a few modifications to "make it mine" at the tempo John demo'd the song in the beginning. Looking forward to more Challenge courses like this.
