If you want to watch this, make sure you're an - absolute beginner - to EQ, otherwise it will be Painfully boring ...and quite a time waster! Nothing against Graham, I think that it's great what he does teaching people on his blog/YT channel, but this video is below the quality of other Puremix videos I've watched so far...

Great video, great teacher and good to be able to get the basics down, really understood this easily and have a better grasp of the basics because of it, thanks so much.

Thank you sir! Found out about you on You Tube. Was a little surprised to see you on but then again not surprised at all because you are an excellent teacher. Look forward to more! I have a decent knowledge of the basics but as usual even when listening to the basics I always pick on something else I didn't know. God Bless!

Hi, Graham! Great to met you on the web through your videos. Fab is a believer in HIGH PASS also, as seen in his videos. That concept has helped me so much in my mixing! You are a wonderful explainer of the details and I really like the way that you dished out the lesson in small enough bites for me to digest. And I like the idea of carving out a portion of the spectrum of sound, to make room so that frequency from a different instrument shines through. Excellent work, Graham! I look forward to learning more from you and I'm so happy that I can see the videos through Pure Mix!
