Blue Bossa triad pair

I'm a chronic advanced beginner, maybe, or intermediate. But maybe not. I'm working on a number of things 1) First time working with triads 2) not a sight reader yet, but hacking through the 'brush' and enjoying both the neck and staff work! This will be a giant step forward. I've got the first bar done and that will be the hardest in my opinion. Can't wait to get all the way through! You made it possible. Love your approach and Personhood as a teacher. Keep up the great work!
Fun to play, accurately transcribed. Working to build up a library of them.

Had a lot of fun with this lesson. Particularly like and apriciate the backing tracks at varied tempos. That really helps to internalize the lesson. Thanks to Nick and the team once again
