Each section also comes with several examples of hit songs the progressions have been used in and a few tips you can use to apply these chords to your own music production.

Student Feedback:

David Benge - "Good clear instruction." (5 star review)

Renato Nakazima - "Great, direct to the point! Easy to understand." (5 star review)

Stewart Cowie - "I've played bass for 20 years but i'm new to keyboards and new to using DAW's and this course has been extremely helpful on both counts. Seeing Joseph build tracks in his DAW was the best part of this course for me, you can learn so much from watching the workflow of people who know what they are doing." (5 star review)
