I recently purchased the RUST2 ISO. After Jedi reset the server (thanks!) - FreeCorder took 8 hours to download it on my decrepit DSL. I have watched it (quickly) once, and am now moving through each pattern rather quickly. RUST2 is definitely worth the price (especially the ISO download price.)
Each student has a learning block, or they wouldn't be seeking an instructor. I'm a visual learner, and my particular block was rhythm notation. Justin patiently explains what it all means with the dreaded white board
. My breakthrough is seeing the pattern on paper, then hearing it in my head. After that, the hands just seem to do the right thing.
Justin breaks down 16th note strumming into understandable pieces, then combines the pieces into more complicated rhythms. Given the palette of patterns, the next step is to listen to any music you like and write the pattern. One small drawback of watching RUST2 - people may notice you 16th-strumming an air guitar as you listen to your tunes.
Justin - one question kept nagging me as I watched the DVD. The duct tape is fairly noticeable. What did you do to your pick guard?
