  1. Loved the podcast on Blues. I am a beginner having started piano less the a year. I have gone through videos and courses and have learned the 12 bar blues form pretty well, but I must say this podcast not only discussed the form, but actually taught you HOW TO USE IT. Really great information. Thank you Brendan!

  2. You’re very welcome Mike! It’s my pleasure. Glad you enjoyed it. Lot’s of more free education here on the site and podcast. Enjoy! Let us know if you need anything at any time.
