Valuable Podcast

Been listening to this podcast for many years. I always learn something new. This latest podcast, "What Makes a Guitar Piece Difficult", is filled with incredibly valuable information for teachers and students. In addition, Dr. Powis wrote notes below; something I was planning to do as soon as I got back from my walk during which I listened to the podcast!
