Causeway is beautifully rendered and beautifully written. It stands alone, complete, both simple and complex. Well done.
harmonizing the major scale in open tunings really helps me learn the various chord voicings
I WAS BORED WITH FIRST POSITION CHORDS..LOVE THE DIFFERENT VOICINGS WITH THE CAPO
In reality I like the teacher, it's easy to understand and it's just what I needed. It's great to learn how to really use the Drop D capo. How to take advantage of it.
made it easy to understand!!!!
Music theory has always boggled my febble brain...and it's still confusing, but with Randall's approach it's starting to sink in
Nice pace and easy to follow. Good sense of humor. No entanglement and strait forward .
