    Thanks for the ideas for using QR codes. I was also hoping you might be able to help put me on the path to creating files that playback audio and visual material as in a backing track. similar to the Just Play format that enables the integration of lyrics, chord shapes, finger placement diagrams that are synced with an audio backing track. Anywho, looking forward to part two of the podcast
