"Brava, bravissima! YITB is far and away the best play-along system I’ve encountered, and I love everything about it: the concept, the tunes, the arrangements, the musicians, the commentary and tips, and the stunning Deco design."
— Doug C., Maryland
"My new best friend arrived by postage this week! The book and CD's so meticulously and magnificently produced by you is a gold medal winner! I'm thrilled to be jamming with the best in the solace of my own living room. Life doesn't get better than this...guaranteed fun!!!"
— Ginger C., Connecticut
"I wanted you to know how pleased I am with it. You obviously put a lot of thought into it and I am finding it not only very useful and instructive, but a whole mess of fun. My band couldn't believe you even thought of including charts in Bb and Eb."
— Don W., Alabama
"I really liked the variety of songs and the ability play solo with them. I had never played with a banjo before."
—Joseph C, 13 years old, Chatsworth, CA
"The book is brilliant. Far and away the best of anything else I've seen along these lines...Thank You. I especially like all the information in the first 30 or so pages and then sprinkled throughout the tunes."
"I am really enjoying YITB. I am learning new tunes to go along with my other lessons. I like the modern twist. This program is fun and different from other choices out there."
—Sabrina R., 16 years old, Los Angeles, CA
"Wow, what job you've done on the play-along. Applause is not adequate. You deserve a standing ovation."
—Sheila W., Illinois
"YITB, even though it's recorded tracks and not live jams, is REAL performance ear training, along with a huge amount of stuff they truly did not teach us in music school. Now you know why I'm so excited about it. Thank you!"
—David L., New York, NY
"I really love the information in the beginning of the book, and as a moderately inexperienced player, it was nice to be able to hear and see the music. The idea is great, and it helps me keep time, practice soloing, and strum consistently."
—Lucy M., 17 years old, Sacramento, CA
