Tonic diminished exercises

This is great stuff. I love the sound and facility that comes with this tool. It really allows me to move through out the horn. Can’t wait for the tutorial on how to use this concept over minor tonalities. Good job Nick.

More brilliant scale exercises

As with all Nick's ground-breaking scales and arpeggio exercises, these are great. I am a classical player and I really appreciate a new and original approach to what can be boring scales!



thanks Charles! I really appreciate these words

Great Concise Content

Hi Nick; I became familiar with your jazz lessons on your YouTube channel. I'm very impressed by the great content you give away up front. Free lessons that are concise and "meaty'. Right to the point, no fluff, useless talk or other BS. Thankfully gigs are coming back strong. I'm looking forward to digging in to the Tonic Diminished major material and internalizing these great ideas into my vocabulary.

Diminished is no longer diminishing!

Great addition to my playing and a very natural step in my learning the next group of arpeggios!
