  1. I love your EQ doodles! I am only just starting on EQ and working through the instructions so am amazed at what can be produced – are you thinking of doing any on-line classes? PLEASE!!!!!!!!

Will have discussions with the Technical Department about expanding into instructions for future Doodle selections. Barbar
