  • How to use your left and right hands more efficiently
  • Increase your dynamic range
  • Improve your tone from both the right and left hands
  • Improve transitions from fingerpicking to rhythm playing
  • How to learn by ear more efficiently
  • Demystify seemingly impossible solos
  • How to string ideas and phrases together to that they create music and not meaningless notes
