I feel we need to do more fundamentals shows than we have been doing lately. I almost called them beginner shows but I don’t feel that is really what they are. While great for beginners fundamentals are for everyone.
Back when I played various sports, even when I got to an advanced level we often worked on the same fundamentals we all had started with say 10 years earlier. There is a reason, in any discipline when your fundamentals are solid everything you add to them improves things. Yet, when those fundamentals are weak the opposite happens, everything you makes things work.
So today I am going to answer ten basic questions on getting prepared. Should be a great show for old and new listeners alike and a great one to share with friends and family…
