As a music producer and a beginner guitarist, I really enjoyed this workshop and the understanding it gave me around building chords, familiarizing myself with inversions and more. Thanks Jake !

This class was a perfect fit for me. It was refreshing to find an intermediate class that focused on harmony and voice leading rather than just a speed drilling class. I really enjoyed working through different keys, getting Jake's examples of substitutions and inversions to spice up simple chord progressions. It was also nice to have the opportunity to chat live and ask questions to clarify things in real time.
