It may feel like “Why should I spend money on this information when I can get it for free?” I thought that too. The answer, if you want one, is simply: “Because it is better."
VegardHa
Both [the Live Performance & Pigments courses] are very thorough & go into great detail, covering basically anything you need to know. The information is well presented, & the videos don't get boring.
