  2. Hey everyone, I hope that everyone is doing ok and not having any coronavirus health problems. I lost my job and I pray that next September we will get funding to start again. It was the BEST teaching job I ever had and it took me so long to get it! I am an ESL teacher for adults. Anyway I did a video using my Taylor Gs Mini and a few iPad apps. I hope you like it. I'm not really good at improvising on the guitar but Steve's triads workshop helped fuel my creativity and I am pretty happy with the way it came out. It got featured on a blog which is very cool. I hope you like it Maria https://discchord.com/appnews/2020/03/20/maria-calfa-depaul-taylor-gs-mini-in-aum-on-ipad-improv
