Mia opinione

Quando ho deciso di acquistare i file ho valutato attentamente e fin da subito mi son convinto che era una bella idea nel stimolare all’improvvisazione nell’approccio a diverse situazioni ritmiche ed armoniche, detto questo ho avuto poco tempo da dedicarci ma per me la cosa è più che valida.

Very useful

For a beginner like me those are very useful exercises that I need to burn into my brain :-). One thing could be improved on the pdf: there could be a table of contents to directly go to a given key

As a bass player this material is great. The way Nick explains some of these advance concepts is so intuitive that It's lit a fire in me to practice every day.

Exactly what I expected to be!

Started using the material as soon as I received it. I knew that what I was buying would start to give me the results I expected. The way the examples are presented are concise and already see the results. Once I’m done with this one I’m moving to the next as i see fits my needs as a bass player. Thank you Nick!!!

I have just started cracking down on triads... great suggestions! I use hem for the piano and the voice. Sofar, great sounds. And the resonance...simple yet so musical is the outcome! A step ahead. Will be back after working hard on it! YAYYY! Hi from Italy! :-))

I recently found this site and tried some of the books of Nic, and must say, there are very good and have found a NEW and clear way of practicing on my guitar ( I’ve been playing and studying for over thirty years now). Thank you very much Nic

As an experienced teacher and keen amateur jazzer I was very exited to discover Nick's Youtube videos and have bought several of the pdf packs I am very pleased with the imaginative and helpful approach. Some of the best practice material I have ever seen!

I had a good experience with this exercise. I had to do it slowly but could eventually get it in my ear.
