I love your content, but downloading is tedious

I am an absolute fan of your content. Most appreciated of all is your emotional and artistic connections to theoretical concepts. I also enjoy your systematic approach to concepts as well as the short leap from exercise to music. My only criticism is that when downloading bundles or multiple courses, the process becomes tedious and difficult to keep track of. It would be very nice to download entire courses as zip files rather than 3-10 separate folders. This is compounded by the bundles. Still, keep it coming. As a profession bassist, I turn to your content for continued learning above all others.

C’est pratique, concret et complet. Ont peut vous comparer à l’approche de Jamey Aebersold. Ont travail toujours dans les 12 tonalités. C’est une approche précieuse.
