Brendan's Notes

I used to travel out West once a year to record guitar instructional videos eight hours a day for a week at a time. It was intense but also quite fun. As a teacher, I'm very comfortable talking about guitar ad nauseam, but this pushed me to write my ideas down and present them systematically. I enjoyed that experience and loved working with all the wonderful people at JamPlay.
