You don’t have to wait for your teacher to give you something.
The average citizen’s access to the world’s knowledge is more complete than ever before – by several orders of magnitude.
When I mention Picardy thirds or alternative tunings as an aside in rehearsal, you don’t have to wait till I have time to teach you the ideas. Google it. Google it now.

The sum of all knowledge is waiting for you. Why are you waiting for someone to wrap it up and give it to you? Go and get it.
You don’t have to wait anymore.
