Theory lessons are fantastic!

I've only gotten through the music theory podcasts...
This is the best / easiest breakdown of music theory I've ever come across. Steve is a natural teacher.
Only thing I'd change is Dan needs to not interrupt (I'm sure he's a great guy and knows his stuff too) it takes away from the flow of what Steve is talking about and often makes things more confusing rather than clarifying.

I wish

I wish Steve Stine had been my guitar teacher when I was 14.

Great content, but one issue

Hey Steve, love the podcast. Now I’m listening to the podcast, not watching. I think it’s great that you acknowledge the people who watch your show live, but could you not stop your teaching to answer questions in the chat that have nothing to do with the content? Just seems to stop the flow, just a suggestion.
