I’ve been ploughing through your copious notes, especially your study no: 9, about approaching chord groupings, and the scales to use.
I look forward to seeing you again.
Cheers, thanks again. Derek Ayling
Thank you very much for the excellent workshop last weekend, I found it most useful and enjoyable. I have not attended a better organised workshop, your commitment and attention to detail was extraordinary and Trefor’s teaching style was refreshingly coherent, with time taken to explain each point before moving on to the next.
I have come away with so much material to work on it will take at least 6 months to work through all the notes and study’s you provided and I’m sure they will come in useful for years to come.
I have started to use your “Fifteen Minute Daily Practice Routine” as a warm up, I am reading through all the studies to decide an order to work through them. Your Ideas on starting improvising has opened up my mind and the penny has dropped, I feel I many obstacles I had previously perceived where blocking my way have been brushed a side. I am sure I will be contacting you in the not to distant future to help me understand and use the studies, maybe a Skype lesson or two would do it, as I will not be able to attend another workshop this year, hopefully I’ll be able to come next year.
Best wishes Ken Lawson
