Thanks for all you do to add this music to more people's lives.
Just want you to know that a retired teacher thinks your lessons are really well structured. Anyone who follows your methods, and listens to helpful advice shared from your own experience, will make good progress as a picker. They just have to apply themselves as you suggest. Thanks for all you do to add this music to more people's lives. It's absolutely medicinal & therapeutic. At least it has been in my life. As a daily practice, I guess it's the finger-pickin' cousin of yoga. Continued healthful good wishes, Don Gallagher
