STUDENT COMMENT:    Rich, I just wanted to let you know that the Just Friends lessons are incredible! 

 Especially the Improv Insights lesson where you discuss  outlining the changes with Chord Tones, and voice-leading them, superimposing arpeggios, and scale choices.........then to boot a couple of extra choruses of you soloing at the end.  
There is a ton of great info here that of course can be applied to other tunes also.  
I especially liked the part on the video where you are doing descending chromatic Guide  tones and showing us how to use them in a solo.......A lot of the instructional materials out there do not  address the fact that you can use guide tones that target  many different notes besides just the 3rd and the 7th..............  
I also figured out some comping using those chromatic guide tones as a top voice in my chord........Wow, what an effect!  
Thanks again, and you deserve special recognition for having such great, well thought out lessons, and especially for selling them at such a good, reasonable price........Sincerely, Bob B from Chicago.
