He takes you through the steps gently, and the trance music that´s behind the introduction entrains you into relaxing and listening (the fact that there´s nothing to look at helps). Playing by ear has a lot to do with trusting your intuition, or whatever you call those little tickly bits at the back of your neck. But for people who´ve learned the piano by reading, (the traditional teaching method), this presents the same difficulty as letting go of the side of the pool when learning to swim. I really learnt a lot from how he presented the material, which I found when I was hunting around on youtube to see what other people had put up. Thank you, Rhythm Canada!
