Me too when you try to understand his time concepts, but still there is a wealth of information to get from the book. I just listen to the CD and when I hear something that makes me grin I find the page in the book and learn the part, even if it is two measures out of sixteen. I don't worry about learning it all, I can't, and even if I did I don't have a place to use it. One of my favorite fills is My Favorite Things 5:55 to about 5:58. It goes by so fast I would have never figured it out on my own. So I'm glad I bought the book and it will keep me busy for the remainder of this life.
