Challenging and Fun!
Took me quite a while to get A to B and B to A in major, minor, dominant, diminished in 12 keys. Why did there have to be so many keys... LOL maybe 4 would have been better. ; )
comprehensive and thorough
an excellent and challenging course with systematic steps towards achieving the goal of being able to play half-diminished chords in A and B voicings in all keys.
Finally get the groove
finally during the courses I get a bit of the jazz-groove
