Fabulous. The best workshop series I have ever attended. Lucas is an amazing communicator who is able to zone in on any difficulties you may be having and find a way to get the message across. I knew zip about modes, now I use them all the time and have come away with enough compositional tools to keep me exploring for years. Thanks Lucas!
