Challenging but worth it
It took me a while to complete this but l loved learning the alternatives to regular chord progressions of the left hand. My fingers are clumsy but getting better.
Fun and a bit challenging
The first time I tried playing Sunrise Blues, I had a very hard time, but with some practice it got a bit easier. I also enjoyed the accompaniment part at the end. It was my first time playing a shuffle groove. That was fun.
Nice Blues beginner stage
Awesome lessons
loved it
Feels like Im getting somewhere. My fingers are starting to go to chords before I think about it. So fun
Still having fun
Every key exposes one to different genres of music which is great.
