  1. Doing More With Less


    I really enjoyed this course because Paul took just a few chord shapes and worked his way around “Speak Low” in a very methodical fashion. This class shows you how to play some really good lines without knowing 500 scales and 800 positions on the neck. Highly recommended.



    I agree with the other reviews, this is a great class!!! One that you can keep going back to and mining for more insight.
    Thanks Paul, this will keep me busy for quite awhile. Highly recommended.

  3. Fabulous and practical lesson!


    From a simple chord mapping of the tune springs much light depth and wisdom! What more could you want! Thanks Paul for sharing your humble humorous approach with Just the right balance of freedom and organization.

  4. There is "Gold" in them there hills!


    The last 30 mins of this masterclass is solid gold! Paul lays it out and the stuff he plays is fantastic! Go get yer shovels! 🙂
