After finishing the jazz harmony series i started with this series and i have to say that this series is a must. Tom works clear and systematic. All players would benefit from these classes. I thought i had knowledge, i thought i could play, boy was i wrong. The Jazz guitar harmony and modern series both have helpd me immproved far beyond i could have expected. Tom doesnt do magic! but he has changed the way i approuch things and how i look at my freatboard. This specific class i had fun with. The arpeggios, the 4 part 4 triads etc. are an amazing addition to my vocabulary. I didnt know what to do with the Augmented and the Harmonic major, these parts where not enough for me due to me not having any knowledge of them. I skipped the last 2 pages but i really loved the sound of both so ill be looking in to both much more, maybe do the Harmonic major class Tom has.

On a side note:
My former teacher would have split 1 class of tom in 15 or more lessons at a??30,- each. Here you get so much for so little. So yes its a quite dry video and to the point, but you dont want it any other way. I need it to be systematic and to the point.

Sorry Tom, but this was poorly recorded. Poor video and can hardly hear the audio. Also, too many assumptions. I am finding these classes are interesting however, incomplete. There should be absolutely no assumptions on my previous knowledge of chord inversions and scales etc.. This is what you are here for. Do not leave nothing out. Much has been left out, assuming that I am supposed to know this or that. sorry Tom.

Well-structured, detailed course with many inspiring examples. Lots of material to chew on, including many concepts I hadn't seen covered in any other guitar instructional videos. I recommend it!
