    One new customer wrote: I just wanted to thank you for putting out such an excellent book (BGS 1). I really like how you explain what you're doing while you're playing it on the audio; this is a tremendous help.
    I've been playing for about 20 years (bluegrass for ten), and this book has really helped with my technique, and understanding of bluegrass. I've suggested your book to my friends, and I think they'll learn as much from it as I have.


    Another Customer Comment:

    I attended your workshop in Avon, NC in January.
    I purchased "Bluegrass Guitar Solos Vol 3" while I was there.  Initially I thought the price was a bit steep.  However, when I compare it to the price of lessons ($40/week) and the fact that it takes me about a week to really learn one of the intermediate arrangements, it's a real bargain!
    I gave up my lessons soon after the workshop, and have been using your material exclusively.
    While I doubt I'll ever be a performer, the sense of accomplishment that I feel when I am able to play a new arrangement is immeasurable.
    Thank you for producing all this great learning material.
