  1. Hi Brent, thanks for all you do to keep us inspired and on track. Quick question: Do we need, should we have book1 before getting book2?

    • Hi Arthur, my pleasure! Good question. You don't need Vol 1 to get Vol 2. Vol 1 does feature a handful of more fundamental standards with some basic jazz harmony concepts, while Vol 2. focuses on slightly more complex harmony, but I do a good job of making sure you understand the basics either way.
