“I signed up for your Hammond organ course this week. It's really useful and well-detailed material. I've been working on Jimmy's 'Organ Grinder's Swing.' Will be contacting you about tutoring. In the meantime, just wanted to say thanks for a terrific online course (I own a 1969 B3 and also an XK1-C).”
