Hours of fun practicing

1st of all it's got tab for us non reading guitarists! Course teaches how to change moods of your playing by substituting triad pairs. Once you get the idea it's so much fun!

THESAURUS of Minor Triad Pairs

I just love the fact that Nick demonstrates how to practice these exercises, and how it can be used in improvisation, i love his method of teaching, also how interesting the triad pairs are used in soloing, thanks Nick for your hard work you put in all of your lessons.

My suggestion

The scales are very well put together, but what would take this course to a higher level, would be to actually write out simple improvisations to help intermediate players.

Recommended approach and practice material for the rest of my/your life

I'm a 50 year old amateur with the skills of an advanced beginner, perhaps at a lower intermediate level, and have been studying improvisation more systematically for the last 2 years. When you start watching YT videos as a novice at some point, you come across Nick Homes. His videos and the approaches and exercises described therein stand out a little from the other offers. But in a positive sense. However, they are all very thoughtful and helpful.The material from the "Thesaurus of Minor Triad Paris" is no exception. Everything is very well prepared and explained in an understandable way and it is a lot of fun to work with the material. If you are a slow learner like me, however, it may mean that you can work with this material for the rest of your life. However, the course is definitely worth the money!

Musical improvising using triads as a foundation

I'm still working through the course and it is an eye opener, as well as a fantastic way to learn my fretboard. Your courses are spot on and fun to watch and practice. Thanks for this excellent course Jazz Duet!

keeps me busy

so far i'm on one drone...Cmin and one set of triads and only the 1st 2 exercises...love playing along with the drone...it will take a life time for me to get through all the material but i'm already adapting the triads in my solo jams in Cmin...i'm not a real jazz player yet but these are cool...playing a C dorian with these lines sound great...can't wait to explore more...one reason i got this study is cause of Nick Homes playing...always great!

The best investion last year ;)

Indeed a very good structured course with exellent accompanying material. I like there is only little theoretical Parts. And Nick explains the choice of the Triad pairs and their characters very eloquent and lyrical. Highly recommended!!

Thesaurus of minor triad pairs

Nick , I really love this workshop. Having played sax for many years it was my intention to build on my sax improvisation skills however I got stuck in on Clarinet instead and to a minor extent flute , would totally recommend this product .

Fantastic system

This in depth dive into the triad pairs system gives you years of things to practice and discover. Triads are a very simple concept to understand and apply yet there is a limitless possibility of sounds and textures contained within. The thesaurus includes lots of examples, backing tracks and drone tones to hear and internalize the sound of the triads. This is great for jazz but the triads are also lots of fun to try to sprinkle into blues and funk jams to create melodies with interesting colour tones Some of the best money I have ever spent on music education. Highly recommended

Minor triad pairs thesaurus

There is a real wealth of information contained here and I’m happy I purchased it. My only problems with the course is my general clumsiness and inexperience with manipulating things on line. I’m a geezer, 71, and almost a living cliche when it comes to the digital universe. I have no doubt that anyone younger or who was generally adept at computer use would have no trouble. I expect that this course will become a regular feature of my practice routine. I’ve barely scratched the surface of it so far and am eager to work on this more. Thanks !

Minor Triads

I absolutely love the material. It's definitely helping me get ahead. I play the Trumpet, so I have to move the drones around to get the tone, but other than that, I love it.. can't wait to continue to practice.. Great work sir..
