Hey Justin,

Really enjoyed this one, I could listen to you for hours :D.
Off topic:
How did you learn to speak so clearly and to keep your speech always interesting?
The reason why I'm asking it is that in october I will start giving physics lectures for first year students at my university, and I really think I need to be working on communication.

One suggestion (fairly non-specific) that might be worked into future podcasts is some basic ear training.

Hi ..very well done ..I actually purchased one of the books you recommended.
I came across your site a month ago and love it . I have purchased a rock song book and the latest Blues backing tracks downloads. Both excellent.

I am a mid level intermediate i guess with holes in my learning so basically whatever you feel is appropriate I am going to pay attention to

Keep up the great work

I found this a very interesting distraction from playing! Well delivered, interesting to keep the listener plugged in and a good length. Look forward to more. Oh yeah Ear Training as Majik suggest would make a good topic.

A very interesting listen, Justin. Thankyou for putting it together so clearly and consicely   :).

If anyone is interested in further analysis of modern marketing and mass psychological/behavioural manipulation, check out the series The Gruen Transfer on ABC TV.  Fascinating stuff.

Hello. Quick suggestion, although this may be covered by one of your apps.
I was thinking it may be worth to consider designing a progressive chord work out app.
One that helps a person to improve their chord changes.

I understand you have that kind of thing built into your beginner course.
Although i was thinking more of a app to increase a persons agility in chord changes
and their speed, without any musical backing. Ideally an app that waits for the player to
play the right chord.

Would be even better if there was some way that the app could be slightly intelligent
in that it could analyse a players success rate and based on their success rate
it could cycle particular chord changes that the player wasn't so good at
and repeat them more often in the sequence so as to make sure the player mastered that
particular change

and when x amount of chord changes had been finally mastered
the app could level up and the individual could then be introduced to another chord?

With this kind of app, going on and on, until the player had mastered all chords in all styles.... lol
or their head explodes one of the other...
