  • I’ve spent 1000s of $$ on guitar learning products over the years and yours are by far the best I’ve seen in both comprehension and value.
  • The Pentatonic Book is an excellent example. As it happens I know my Pentatonic scales very well and while I am familiar with the material, I find it a great way to add structure to practicing these scales and strengthen the practical application of them. There is always something new to learn each time I go through it.
