    Fantastic

    Since I bought the Blue Bossa Triad Pairs I can't get my hands off the sax! Only writing this review is a good reason to do so... The triads are making their way into my dreams. I can play them for hours, and they ignite the creativity in a way nothing has done so ib the last years... This is dynamite!!! Thank you Nick so much, and what a timing...

    Blue Bossa Triad Pairs

    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!
