"…there’s a guy who can really play the piano” Dave Brubeck

The aim of the course is to get better at improvising on a slow blues. In the course, Paddy starts by playing an authentic slow blues crammed with great ideas and riffs. He then breaks everything down, explaining what he's doing in detail, giving you plenty of creative ideas for you to use in your own playing.

Good luck! You can start by trying out a free video below to get a feel for the course.
