    This class is a must for all guitarists. Vic and Harvie are true masters and show the many possibilities that exist within the duo context. They address issues of programming; contrast, variety comping, listening and also the history of the guitar/bass duo as well as other duos. And they play excellent original music. Don’t miss this one!
