well-paced blues course
a great introduction to right hand blues figures and a step-by-step way of achieving them.
Great for improving your blues in the key of G!
I'd probably covered some of the blues basics here described in other courses (e.g. Bible of Blues Riffs ). But was great to transport learnings to another key.
Great
Very useful exercises
