For my level a bit steep (beginner) but a good challenge
I'm writing this review after working with material for two weeks now. The material is just great! It's a fun way to explore blues progressions that go beyond the basic I-IV-V-progression. I highly recommend the workout to everybody who doesn't like to train the ears with just intervals and chords without context. PLUS you can use the progressions to get creative yourself!
Honestly, I recently downloaded and have not time to thoroughly study this program. I purchased this product in good faith as I have been satisfied with earlier musical-related purchases.
I love your overall approach to music, I'm a musician that performed a lot but haven't developed a good knowledge of music through the years... You're helping to make it all clear, finally. :)
I've been watching Nick Holmes teach musical harmony for a couple years now. He shares an absolute wealth of knowledge in his videos, but it's the downloadable extra content the gives the keeners some great study material. I'm so grateful to have become a better musician through his content.
I really like the materiaslI bought. Thank you for your efforts in developing an easy way to understanding music complexities.
I find the exercise is simple, but very deep and efective. The explanation goes directly to the point. Good audio files. Excellent job. Thanks
I'm Greatefull, I bought a few Products from Jazzduets, This Pdf and videos are amazing, an easy way to explain Things hard to undertand by your self, I understood things in just minutes of listening the Material, and with a few weeks of practice I will improve my Playing by Far. The Jazz language explained in minutes. EXCELLENT !!
Nick produces videos for what is simply one of the best YouTube music channels available.
Good for practice and the knownledge of Blue's harmonic forms
Very clever way of learning the composition of scales and functions, on top of an excellent ear training tool of course. A similar system including Minor Melodic chords would be even greater! I use it the way you show it, with paper and pen. I can hear every options and could write every grid with functions only, but am not fast enough yet to write them down in certain "unsusal" keys. By the way, for a A7 in the key of C, do you use the Berkeley V7/II system which includes the possible resolution or the more classic Juilliard (?) VI7? I find the latter easier, but wonder if the first isn't more profitable in the long run?
As an internediate player this course is very challenging for me, but fun!
Really worth it's money! :)
A really great tool lo learn to hear all these different changes ! So useful :-)
Very good material to learn (hear) the blues with. I particular like grid architecture showing the different "paths" that can be followed. I understand that your goal towards ear training, however it would benefit immensely to have an indication of the chords voicing for the piano to verify and solidify what is being heard, at least couple examples from your most popular keys. Thanks,
Great ear training companion to 10+ essential blues progressions... Singing the roots along is a great way to ingrain all the variations.
