Think of it as a Black Sugar Transmission album subscription for the year 2020, with installments arriving at seasonal intervals.
This package includes all three CDs, each signed, each with an accompanying handwritten lyric sheet, each with free digital download (which you can collect here - look for the download code in your confirmation email). It also includes CD trilogy box, which will ship with the final disc in the Fall.
The first album of the trilogy (the winter one) is called Wandering Into The Bullseye and will ship in late-February. The second (The Flowering) will be available on June 2nd as a download (and hard copies shipped in mid-June). The final album (untitled as of now) will arrive in the Fall.
What you get now: download of Wandering Into The Bullseye and The Flowering. Watch your mailbox for the CD in 2-3 weeks.
PLEASE NOTE: The shipping cost is a one-time fee for all three CD shipments! It costs about $3 to ship a CD in the U.S, so your total shipping for the trilogy pre-order is $9. For overseas orders the shipping for a CD is about $13 (sorry!) so your total shipping for the trilogy pre-order is $39.
2-CD, 24-track double album will ship within a week and you'll receive an email with a download code for the album (which you can collect here).

Ah, vibrato. It's one of the musical fingerprints of so many of the great players, from BB King to Yngwie. Yet, so many players get it wrong! In this video, Andee tackles this thorny subject and dissects ways to apply sweet vibrato technique to straight notes and bent ones. For intermediate-to-advanced players.
