Brent Mason – Nashville Chops is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 1 .
Rated 4.0 out of 5 by from 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!
