I am pleased to read all of the responses here. I'll do my best to answer a few of your questions....And we are less than two weeks away from enrollment!

There is no need for any additional software to access this method.

In short, yes to your questions...There is studio advice sprinkled throughout....I also have an area especially aimed at players who are interested in advancing modern steel guitar....Those that are in the studio or on the bandstand faced with creating parts on songs that have no history with the instrument should love that room....Also how to back up traditional country singers is being filmed in a few days along with the C6th...The campus should have plenty to keep everyone busy and new videos will be added on a regular basis....Hence the two years preparation for this initial release.

I agree, great thoughts...Teaching is needed and teaching helps to advance the instruments growth...

Is there going to be a limit as to how many people can enroll?

Thanks for doing this Paul. I've been playing for going on 40 years and could sure use something to inspire me to keep playing and that the demand for steel guitar has slowed so much. I'm really looking forward to learning more about C6. Count me in!

The Paul Franklin Method Team here, posting on Paul's behalf:

Here's a quick update! The site is almost ready for launch, we're making sure we have every feature working across all platforms and testing all of the site's features.

This weekend we are shooting lots of C6th content and covering even more E9th topics.

In the meantime, we'd like to share this excerpt from the "Intros" lessons, featuring the intro Paul played on Alan Jackson's version of "Farewell Party"... exclusively with forum members!

Thanks for your patience!

I am so anxious to get started with this! A little apprehensive too, hope I can make it work for me.... I'm self-taught and have probably learned a lot of bad habits that will get blown apart...but I'm more than ready to give it a try! Not everyday we get a chance to learn from a guy who is at the top of the game!
