A Window to useful Vocabulary opened for me

Great. To improvise over a consistent stable chord drone is a deep experience that really inspired me and gives me a big lift. Same to say about the different feelings the different chord drones are generating. The „shapes“ are a written „intelligent“ impro material for me to use for soloing Over chords in a more organized way. This written shapes worked great to accelerate my reading tempo. The Triad pair concept was for me Amateur Trumpeter a big „eye opener“ The customer service (I had have some very special Questions) had been quick and nice. Thanks Jazzduets Uli H. Vienna

Little Sunflower Triad Pairs

Service was (again) excellent. I was very pleased to find a triad pairs tutorial dedicated to a song that I know reasonably well and I look forward to applying the exercises to Little Sunflower and other tunes. Unfortunately, other priorites are getting in the way at the moment (are there priorities other than music?!!?), but I can't wait to get down to work.

This is a great lesson for guitarists.

Very concise: quick learning curve, so easy to start using, but a lifetime of practice and continuous improvement in here. I have wanted to learn how to use triads for some time. Most of the on-line resources that I came across just give you a bunch of shapes and some theory, but don’t give much insight into how to go about learning and using triads. This course is giving me that. The patterns and the pointers about absorbing them into my own style/playing are really helping me. I have been at this for about one week and already it has changed the way that I see the fret board. It has also freed my playing by giving me something other than 3rds, 5ths and arpeggios around which to build bebop lines. Well done Nick.
