I'll be keeping an eye on this. It will be interesting to see if and how his learning method differs from other books out there already.

Thanks for the info! :)

Wow! Never knew he wrote books.

By chance, do you have a link? I couldn't find it on Amazon or Hal Leonard :(

I think for most of us, it would turn out a lot like this lesson with Jake:

Thanks for sharing that video. I enjoyed that.

And, thanks for the information on the upcoming book.
In case anyone wants the link:

It's a book with online audio and online video.

I recall that Jake had an app, (not sure if it still exists), that was for learning, too. Wonder if that's good? I recall seeing it in ITunes.

"Make a d-minor with the high D"...insanity ensues.

"Remove that finger" "When I do that, my instrument just sounds like a ukulele."

Is this you? I love this sense of humor.

I get lots of Amazon gift cards from work so I'll definitely pick it up and see how it is. I would certainly expect to be rather advanced.

I was in absolute tears. I brought my wife in and we were in tears together. Definitely an Oscar caliber performance.

Spread the word on this one...
