Bob Hoban Rules!

This was not only informative for piano players, but for any one who wants to understand Country Music, it explains things in a way that clarifies some of the history of country music. I will say that some of the chords ar enot explained in a way that a beginner would understand immediately. If there was notation attached to this it would be a very valuable resource.
