BANDHAPPY user Tim Hall completed his first lesson with Boris Le Gal of Chimp Spanner yesterday. “Just finished my first lesson with drummer Boris Le Gal of Chimp Spanner on BANDHAPPY! This guy has amazing technique and really helped me get mine back on track. Those who haven’t heard of him or Chimp Spanner should really go and do it now, and then book a lesson with him!”
Another user, Kyle Boyce, states, “[BANDHAPPY] seriously is one of the coolest tools a musician can have. There is no reason why people should not be all over this. It’s a legit, amazing way to become better at what you love and to learn from people you actually listen to. Very much looking forward to my next lesson.”
BANDHAPPY teacher and Textures guitarist Bart Hennephof and student Matt Vodnik completed the first ever official BANDHAPPY lesson this week. “Just finished the first BANDHAPPY online lesson,” stated Hennephof. “It works great! Brainstormed about riffs and songwriting, and jammed some Textures riffs with Matt Vodnik. This guy can play! The video and interface works great, no complaints. I’m looking forward to the next lessons! BANDHAPPY rocks!”
