Amazing guitar instructor, always makes it so simple and easy to grasp you gave examples, demoed the examples and then explained why they work. Great classic, really simple stuff but taught in very fun way! i've known paul for some weeks and I love the way he graphs his examples, that means, notes and chords over guitar, while hand is on too. I really appreciate the projects, so we're not just watching him do a thing, but instead immediately putting the thing into practice ourselves to really cement our learning.
