  17. Reminds me of that scene in saving private ryan where upem is speaking the words to the song and Ryvan says you know upem I find myself strangely aroused by you lol. Nah Man great job. Ive been working on your redemption song lesson quite abit I had to stop since I have carpal tunnel and take a few days off. But this one will have women throwing their panties at you haha. Nice stuff your singing encourages others to sing while they learn so instead of just playing we can actually perform if we want.
