I know very little about Tom Hess. I stumbled upon his YouTube videos a few months ago when looking up some technique tips, and had never heard of the guy. I still don't know exactly who he is or what his interaction with the wider world has been. Given that, I did poke around his channel and website. It triggered my "This man is trying to scam me" spidey sense. I don't know how describe it concretely, but I got distinct vibes to stay the hell away from anything he was pushing. And that reads like the kind of bulls!!t testimonial that any good scam has in spades. Now maybe you're a real person and maybe he's a great teacher, but every time I look into anything related to the dude it's just a parade of red flags.
