Nice Pace, Good Info
Not for the absolute beginner, but if you know some rudimentary theory, he explains concepts in a clear and concise way. I especially like the way he presents something specific, then offers the broader, more general idea behind it, along with suggestions for how to explore and practice on your own until it becomes fluid and fluent. Recommended.
