At this point you might
want to send me a video.
We've been dealing with some more
challenging pieces of music,
Birds Way Daughters, The Lost Melody,
and of course, Do You.
Now Do You is the one based
on the rhythm changes.
That one you know if you're feeling like
it's a little of an uphill battle
at this point that's not a problem.
I can tell you for me I've been working on
those kinds of changes for all my life.
It took me a lot of effort and
a lot of intensity and
focus on learning that skill.
Those type of harmonic rhythm those
changes, that harmonic rhythm.
Particularly that kind of
a tune on rhythm changes.
So Do You,
you don't have to do that one right away.
I would say stick with Birds Way or
Daughters of the Lost Melody at first.
Cuz there's plenty of challenging material
in there and maybe pick one of those.
But before you send it in please check
out what I've said to the other students
I'll take a look and
I'll give you some feedback.
