Can't handle this guys voice.
I really tried to get thru this one. But the guys' voice just gets on my nerves after a while :( I managed to get thru the absynth one, but couldnt do this. Great teacher, but the voice is truly hard to listen to. It kind of sounds like he's panicking. An update would ensure my subscription.
