This group is for those interested in learning to play what they hear. All levels welcome - hope the advanced can help the beginners. TAB'ers are welcome too, whether looking to change their ways or simply interested in the discussions.

Just checking in with the group . . . I am still trying to focus on the FE series but got off on a tangent. I am planning to get the new DVD video, "Creating Solos: Embellishing the Melody". Hopefully that…"
