    Useful info for a soloing beginner.

    Just really loving this course right now. I love the sounds of the 6ths…my goal is to learn more Hawaiian melodies and slack key and what I’m learning here is exciting to me cause I can hear the harmonies used in Hawaiian slack key. Your instruction and accompanying study guides and charts are clear, concise and so appreciated. I know a lot of time went into them. Thank you!

      You’re welcome! Glad you’re hearing the Hawaiian sounds. Once you start “getting it”, the possibilities are endless!

    I add to the praise your efforts merit. Print material is great. Combination of tab and graphics – as well as video – have made my learning a lot faster. A lot of material to be processed. However, have watched beyond my skill set, so will spend some time having fun with what I’m comfortable with. I take your suggestions in that regard to heart.

    Do have a question as to the meaning of the diagonal slash before the E at the beginning of Measure 1, “Playing Over Chords – Part 1”.

      Mahalo Bob! It’s a TON of material. The good news is that you can return to it at any point once you’re more comfortable with the first handful of lessons.

      Re: the slash. It’s a slide INTO the note from an unspecific fret. However, I need to alter the tab there since the notation isn’t quite accurate. I think the slide is by itself as a pickup beat. Oops. I’ll fix that ASAP.

    Brad – really great course. And, as you and many have pointed out — there is A LOT of material here. You’ve laid it out in a way that is clear, simple, and straightforward — which is fantastic. Despite that, I find myself going back and reviewing the material to reinforce the learnings. I have found that even though the concepts make sense straight away — it does take me a bit to carry the understanding forward in a way that I can readily apply it.

      So glad you think so! There IS a lot of material. 16 lessons doesn’t seem like a lot, but you could probably spend a couple years strictly studying 6ths!

    Love it – “I don’t expect it to sound good – I’m just experimenting.” Yes!!!
