    Thanks to Good Riddance” as it offers a great way teaching . The novice guitarists need to know how the stroke and movement of fingers work together. Exact way of note picking and follow the dictation is immensely important to know. How fantastically the combination of straight strumming actually happen ! I listened the podcast with great interest. Though It is elementary level but very effective. Thanks.
