Colin teaches major and minor thirds theory very effectively, and to simply apply it in a chord progression, he also has good theory in the area of chord construction, which is a necessity, which is printable and explained with his courses. Yes he can be a little old fashioned / traditional with his method he sets out, but sometimes you need this if you are struggling in understanding what you need to know, so you can build upon your theory knowledge in the music area you like / prefer. If you like the demo solo he shows you here, you may like other theory / courses he has available.
