Hi Keith! It's awesome to hear you are getting so much out of these lessons!!
I've been learning songs for decades now, so all that experience definitely helps. Usually it takes 3 or 4 focused learning/practice sessions where I work to transcribe the parts accurately and get them under my fingers. From there, it moves into more general practice sessions, where I perform the song several times to really burn it in - in the days leading up to the filming of the lesson.
As you can imagine, some songs are easier and others much more challenging, so the number of practice sessions will reflect the difficulty of the song.
And then of course there's figuring out how to structure the tutorial, writing the script, etc all of which contribute to the prep time.
Hope this answers your question!
