  15. Great lesson. Not sure if it was a break through, but I learned this years ago and know the patterns very well, but never resolved the patterns to the next chord position. Just didn't realize I was there. Kinda a karate kid moment for me when I realize I've just not known that the end was resolved in the same chord. Hope that makes sense. It's confusing and that's probably why I learned but didn't understand it. Got it now. Thanks.
