Fabulous
Nice work team PWJ
Challenging but fun "eventually" 🤣
Great course that brought some great new challenges that stumped me for ages but well worth it when revisited weeks later. The format is great too as it builds more memory.
Well organized and fun!
This is quite challenging for me. However, the way the lessons are layered is extremely helpful. I’m still having trouble playing with the backtracking but I plan to keep at it, Great lessons! Thank you!
Great course with some fun challenges
Enjoyed how this scale was illustrated using the different groove patterns and chord progressions! Great course!
Fabulous
I love how the course is structured. One step at a time. i learnt a new skill, how to slide the notes from the beginning of the course and its variations. I could play it well (in root position) but when it comes to Chord Inversions , its another ball-game. Had to go really slow to master it because it does help to transfer chords faster and smoother with minimum jumps. As this is my 1st course since joining PWJ, am excited to see what are ahead.
