Guitar lessons with an emphasis on tone and the application of scales and riffs to music through timing and feel. Learn to count to 4. Learn the seven ways to pick a string. Learn the details that separate the great guitar players from the mechanics.
I've developed a teaching method that simplifies getting around the fretboard using two basic scales and using root notes as anchors. I focus on the playing and understanding of timing and phrases. Soloing is a musical conversation with full grammar. There are commas, periods, exclamation points and question marks. There are paragraphs and run on sentences too. If you want to shred, just learn scales off youtube and play as fast as you can. If you want to play rock, blues, or country and say something musically, then call me!

Price is 30$ per hour lesson. It usually works out to 1/2 hour instruction, or until your brain is full, then some jamming to understand how it fits. If you or your parents are broke come talk to me. I keep a few slots open to give back the free lessons I got as a kid.
