    Amazing, what have i missed all these years. This is the last in the series, not is it only sooo much info its fun and systematic. Im still bussy with this one and it will take some time but to have all the drop voicings as an option is just amazing. KNowledge is power and this is so much power! The whole series is a must for all guitarist and it doesnt matter what style you play. Tom explains everything perfectly. I cant recommend this enough.

    This entire series is excellent! Like Tom explained in the beginning, some of the material may be review, which it was for me, however because of its thoroughness there were several things that have filled in some of my gaps. I really look forward to the Advanced classes! I highly recommend these even if you are an advanced player! Tom is also a great teacher who explains everything very well and the written material is very easy to follow! Well worth it!
