  1. Hi Brenden,
    I have a suggestion for an episode. Would it be possible to do a lesson showing a systematic approach to using grace notes. They really add to a piece, but its knowing which notes work best in which situations. It would be great if you could show them used in different chord inversions in a diatonic scale showing which scale degrees work against each chord. Also some idea of the best fingering to use. Maybe it could be done in a series of exercises which could be taken around the cycle of fifths gradually getting more advanced. They don’t come naturally to me yet but watching you they just flow out. Any help would be appreciated.
