    Im 84 years young and my tongue and lips dont function so well . I play by Tongue blocking. The numbers are confusing to me and I learn by ear. Can you play some simple one note melodies with out the extras and I can add the amenities after I learn the song. I have your vidios and lessons and enjoy them immensly. thank you for your consideration. DICK p.
