  1. Jay; These tracks are soooo great. I am taking your advice when I took your pentatonic coarse & trying to learn a tune a week, these tracks are great for this; not just the tune but spend a lot of time on the harmonies so I like the solos I am doing. Again thanks you have a fantastic talent for teaching. Wally G
