Fun Fun Lesson!!
I appreciate the detailed instruction from the ground up.
Super!
Very clear and thorough explanation and training from Jonny of a well known blues song. I had so much fun with this,
Feels Good!
Love the key of G for blues and this is a perfect song to learn it. The Db to C drop on beat 4 of bar 9 really highlights the piece. 🙂
I play this over and over! I never get tired of it.
I really enjoyed learning the "roll". This was challenging for me, even as a long term classical pianist.
It was great fun
I both enjoyed to play the beginner and the intermediate version - not that easy smiling
