All Instrumental Pack

I've been often asked to make an all instrumental pack, so, here it it.  The instrumentals #1 to 11 already featured in other packs though.

But I will add new instrumentals to this pack.  They start with #12.  The videolessons will be free on my YouTube channel or below on this page and the tabs will be added to the dropbox.

So once you bought the pack all the additions are free of charge.  The tabs will be added to the dropbox.

So, sub to my YT channel and check the dropbox for additions (I don't send out notifications, why, see "Privacy" chapter in the navigation bar below).
