To Richie: "Thank you so much for putting these courses together. I've been playing jazz guitar for years, and my playing has never progressed faster. Many of the concepts in Vol 1 were review for me, but your organization of the concepts (and extremely useful heptatonic fingering patterns) completely changed how I approach improvisation. It's like I already had several puzzle pieces, but needed you to show me how they fit together! I play fairly regularly in a jazz quintet, and all four other members have commented on how much less I'm relying on "licks" they've heard me use and abuse."
