Major Fun
I really liked the accompaniment section of this one. Learning different rhythms and mixing them up yet using chords I had gotten use to. I like the structure a lot because I can get it up to speed in a relatively short amount of time. I am enjoying this a lot !!! Thank You.
Great fun and challenging
Really enjoyed this and the extension into chords like the diminished
I’m sounding jazzy!!
Very enjoyable and satisfying!! I want more!!
Informative
I liked the fact that I was introduced to new chords from the different scales in the minor key. I'm just wondering why the 2 and 6 don't have 2 chords each. D minor from the 2 chord as well as D diminished and Ab minor as well as Ab major on the 6 chord
Another solid fundamentals course
As with all the other fundamentals courses, it's a good chance to get comfortable with one particular key, and every exercise is an opportunity to work on playing fluidly and musically.
