So good
Breaks down some building blocks. So worth doing.
Really great!
I like the instructor, too!!
Like the flat 6 chord
Brought together something I only half knew
Inspiring
As usual, the progressive nature of the course leads you on without ever feeling left behind. Builds confidence, knowledge and skill.
Blues AND improvisation for the first time. Yeah!!
Step by step, some repetitions and I got it. Very well structured. It was so much fun. And I never thought improvisation would be possible within such a short time.
