Kim in California: Thank you for sharing your talents and music with us. I am 47 and played french horn in high school many, MANY moons ago. I picked up a guitar and am determined to learn to play. Your sheet music and lead sheets have been very helpful and I just wanted to say thank you very much.
Peter: Thanks for a great web site and a very useful tool for us teaching guitar.
Christine: Thank you so much for this site! I have just started teaching some really keen Y6 boys who want to play Scarborough Fair, and your version is perfect. I will now go and look at what other goodies you have!
Matt: THIS SITE IS AMAZING!! I've been teaching guitar for about 5 years now, and I've only just found your website!
