    Yes, all kinds of purchase options at pbs.org...I went for the whole shebang and got the dvd, cd, and book. iTunes has the 5 cd set for download and I saw the book in my local Costco a few weeks ago.

    Re: Jam etiquette

    Excellent advice to play along with recordings, I’m trying and getting better but it’s tough. One thing I do is pick out the melody...once I have a few lines I can generally get the key then. Keep...

    Re: Jam etiquette
