    Even though I don’t know how to read music, I absolutely love Rick Beato’s videos, and have become a big fan. He explains things in a very clear, easy to understand way, and on top of that he’s an outstanding musician himself. Anyone who can play a Larry Carlton solo note for note gets a big bow from me!
