Loved it !!
Very catchy little tune. Really like having the backing track.
Got a great deal from it. Particularly good with the grooves.
Nothing to add. Quite happy with it.
Excellent.
Love the accompaniment exercises. All so practical.
Forgetting what I've covered
So, I'm having great fun learning so far, but the problem is that as I learn a new tune, I get so stuck into it that I forget all the old tunes. So, I guess after I've finished two sections of the beginners course, I'll go back to the beginning and review from the beginning, hopefully going a lot faster this time, and only them move on to the next section. But it's been great fun so far. Thanks very much
Key of D Major
Excellent intro to learning the blues form at beginner level at your own pace. Walking away with a blues song and three accompaniment grooves is rewarding and a great addition to the repertoire.
