Simple Secrets Revealed
Just as professional baseball players return to the basics each year for Spring training, Jonny takes you through the basics of improvising which you can return to for improvising on any chord progression. The Love Progression is reminiscent of the song "Can You Feel The Love Tonight" from The Lion King. Someone wrote that song going back to the basics, creating a universally loved song, and a lot of money. The next hit song could be any one of ours. Thank you, Jonny!
Excellent!!
Full of excellent tips and techniques: now to put them to practice!
Fun to play
This is exactly what I wanted to learn. Something easy und lovely sounding and very good improvisation tools. This is material I can always use when I see a piano somewhere or somebody asks me to play something.
