Today’s clip started with a solo abstract of Country Girl, one of two lessons of his we released this week. The other new release were The Old Laughing Lady, Rosanna by Toto and Careless Whisper by George Michael.

I see we have had a big influx of Busking tunes which have been really fun to tune in to, along with a couple Uploads For Review, which I will get too soon. The Forum segment did start with a few tips on Mickey’s version of Because, which will be coming along with a full lesson on it next week. The big point was to really bring out the melody.
