Challenging but fun
Doesn’t waste time practicing same thing over and over. Always something new.
Fast song for old fingers
Enjoy the course. Not able to play the solo with the backing tract but able to play the 3 accompaniment.
Good work
I feel much more comfortable with this scale after the course
Another Good Course
Good overview of the scales and chords as always. It was interesting that I was learning the blues scales earlier, and I noticed that the right hand in the song is completely derived from that scale. I like how Yannick introduced some interesting rhythms in the accompaniment section.
well explained
Good pace of lesson
