Bonus Packs For each podcast we create a ‘bonus pack’ that expands on what we’ve discussed in the episode. Each bonus pack includes video lessons, diagrams, chordboxes and practice materials, that build on the things we’ve discussed in the podcast. (There's only so much we can explain through audio. Sometimes it's easier to SHOW you stuff and that's when the bonus packs come in handy.)
