    Firstly it’s still time (just) to send you my warmest new year greetings from France, and I look forward to learning lots more this year through your great lessons. I’m a self-tutored beginner and find you communicate and teach brilliantly through your podcasts. I love this song so really enjoyed getting to grips with part 1. Part 2 though seems to have gone up a level, especially in speed. I guess I’ll just have to keep practising to fit in all the chord changes.
    Really, I just wanted to thank you for the time you commit to this site and especailly the pod casts.
