I love this podcast! From the way somebody blows across the mike at the top to how Peter and Adam talk all over each other (I don’t tell them apart even now that I’m listening to the episodes for the 2nd and 3rd times) to their totally sound and motivating teaching. I want to transcribe what they’re playing but it’s a keyboard conversation that only they can have. I’m happy to be a listener
Oodles of noodles
These guys bring out the best in each other, like a duo who have playing together for years. Very entertaining and informative. Nevermind the haters, keep on noodling, singing and making basketball analogies. Shout out to Byron Lovelace.

First of all, here’s seven stars for you guys for sure. I thoroughly enjoy listening to you guys and I’m learning lots. If some dude doesn’t like getting into the weeds because he thinks he already knows everything, then sorry, but he should probably go somewhere else. Please keep doing what you’re doing and don’t change a thing!
