Very Good - However
I like the presentation however I would have like to have seen one more rendition of the lick in a slower fashion or motion then I would be good to go! So basically there would have been 3 renditions (1 original 2 slow 3 slower still) - that's all I'm saying.

At last !! The Truth is revealed.
I feel like I struck gold here. Like Greg says it's all about the nuance. This series tore me out of my Netflix Coma and set me on the path of righteousness at last. I can only hope he does a second series in which he reveals his 88 favorite grooves of all time. Sterling Effort Mr. Koch
