The Tuscany workshops were awesome as usual, but not without challenges I've not faced before! The first day I lost my voice, almost completely and had to teach with a microphone and a harsh grumble! Was like some kind of horror soundtrack teaching happy songs. And in the second week, many of the students got ill from a bug or food or something and made it all a bit strange - but great feedback again, some saying the best workshops so far - and we've got some even better venues in store for 2017!
The new web site mega update is going great, the back end is mostly sorted (at the most basic level, we got big plans!) but now I'm going through every lesson and checking and updating them, it's gonna take some time, I need probably a month full time to get it done but there's lots to do on top, like new lessons etc. But going as fast as I can!
The new designer Will has been hard at work on the new Tee shirts and there's a bunch more to be out next month too! I'm gonna make sure we have the best range of guitar themed shirts available anywhere :) so if you dig your guitar tees then do go check them out.
The Christmas Songbook is pretty much done, just final proofing needed before it's off to the printer! Think it's a great selection of traditional carol type songs and new funky pop classics and a bunch of fingerstyle arrangements. Should be available mid November!
Also managed to get some new collections of Ear Training Exercises done using various instruments which will be available on the store and iTunes shortly - just waiting on cover artwork. But that'll be cool.
Anyhows, I got plenty to do and no time to do it, so I'll love you and leave you for now. Hope you're having a fab time on your guitar journey and see ya soon!
Wishing you much love, laughter and guitar fun! J.
