    Cool funk vids. Any chance of some Prince songs for the song lessons?

      I wish I could, but Prince and now I guess his estate are very particular about where and how his music is used.

      In fact, when Prince was still alive, he came after me for just using his name in a video (not his actual music though). Pretty ridiculous. If that ever changes, I will definitely post some Prince stuff. 🙂

        Ah, I did wonder how he’d slipped through the net! Shame about the restrictions, still a hero I guess though. Plenty of other great songs you’ve done for me to get on with too! ?
