Helpful for Those with Experience

I was really glad to listen to Brent's breakdown of his technique but I've also been playing for many years and I can see how much of it would be a mystery to a beginner. Yet, it is great for helping anyone to get on the right path so that your practicing can be more targeted if Brent is your goal!
