I gave this as a gift to a most wonderful musician. He's definitely got the talent, and the intelligence, I want him to go far. So I did the best thing I could do... give him the tools to succeed. You'll be seeing him soon, in a city near you!!! Thank you Martin Atkins for cutting through the crap and making THIS the New Musician's Bible. dAVE.
