This review is for all of Tom Regis's videos
I wanted to take a moment to say how excellent ALL of the Tom Regis videos are. The information he provides has been so useful to me. At first, I didn't totally get it. The courses are not highly structured or ridged. It seemed a little "loosey goosey" at first and I mentioned that in another review. But I was wrong and want to take that statement back. What he really does is make the information approachable, easy to understand, and easy to assimilate into your own music. In fact I have used what he taught in my songwriting. Truly great stuff!!
