Golden Guitar Grooves.

I’ve bought lots of material to help me develop vocabulary. I must say this is one of the best. No complicated strings of notes, just simple melodic phrases.

Problem to download

When I try to download "Light swing workout" I can not do That. I get the message "Download limit reached. You have downloaded 8 times". What is this? Am I not allowed to download as many times as I want? I have bought the material in order to use it as often as I want. The material is very good, but the download is a problem. With kind regards Christian Wesslau

Good material, slow focused practice wins the race

My soprano sound and fluency have gone through the roof. Your material also got me to learn how to use Anytune Pro. Its early days, but am excited to practise every day with Alto and Soprano. Still do some reading of the notes, but definately using my ears more!

Hi, Nick. I really appreciated your "Golden Guitar Grooves" book. I know of course I'll have to practice a lot of that, but it's OK. The music material is excellent. I practice saxophone. Thank you Carlos Guimaraes from Brasil

GGG review

I completely agree with the jazz duets concept of learning by listening. Some 70 plus years ago as a 1 year old, this system worked really well in my learning to speak. I learned correct grammer composition years later. So why not learn to improvise following the same process. I’m just a beginner, learning to play saxophone and even though much of the theory is way beyond me, the course layout, listening and repetitive playing is doing wonders for my ear training, learning intervals, scales and timing. I love GGG!

Funky Soul Guitar backing

I am loving the backing tracks and licks. It was only for reading practice but they are popping up all over the place in my improvs, so my repertoire has suddenly expanded!

This is a reallyl great package.

I have only gotten to this the last few days, but I really like it so far. The download process was seamless, as I would have expected it to be. The work is really useful, and I look forward to learning a lot from it. I like the call and repeat format, and would be interesting in seeing more like this. Good luck.

Outstanding, thorough, and fun!

This is the 3rd Jazz Duets bundle that I’ve purchased and the easiest to start with. It is clear how much thought went into recreating the style of the artists that each of the exercises were influenced by. I find it incredibly fun to alternate between playing at the same time as the sax demos and playing on the 2-4 measure rests meant to improve on locking into the rhythmic feel. Each exercise has 2 or 3 licks that I can immediately add to my repertoire. Well done, Nick!
