Rock & Roll
Really like getting to 7th chords. There are several left hand positions I've always had trouble with using 4 notes but doing the A7, D7 and E7 over and over it got better and easier.
Good to rock
Lots to learn here with slide melody and shuffle patterns in a new key of A
Fun! Fun! Fun!
As always, very instructive and tons of fun!
Always fun!
Very enjoyable and and challenging!
Another solid funcdamentals course.
Like the other fundamentals courses, this one improves both your knowledge of music theory and your actual playing skill.
