Want to learn to play guitar? Or maybe you just want to improve your playing?
I would like to help you reach your goal. I have been playing guitar for fifty years. I can teach you blues, folk, country, flat picking, finger style, chords, theory and more.

I will teach you in the comfort of your own home. Lessons are 1/2 hour long and cost $30. per lesson
We will structure the lessons to your needs and help you play better.

The ideal student will have their own guitar (acoustic or electric) and the desire to play.
Dont keep putting off playing better! What a great gift. MUSIC!! Lets get together!

Something for beginners to think about:

Should I start with an electric or an acoustic? is a question I get all the time. You or your son or daughter are about to take the leap into the world of guitar playing. It's certainly an exciting time. You want to get off on the right foot. What type of instrument should you purchase? Lets start with the pros and cons of both:

Acoustic - Pros:
What you see is what you need. Tune it up and off you go. An acoustic is ready to go right out of the case.
It'll make you work a little harder. Acoustic guitar doesn't have any buttons or knobs to get your "sound". The sound comes from your hands. No mountain of distortion and or reverb can hide those mistakes only practice and good technique.

Acoustic - Cons:
It hurts. No worries, It doesn't hurt that much and it does go away after a few weeks, but to a young student who struggles to get up the motivation to practice, why put another excuse between them and the practice room.
It'll make you work a little harder. (See above)

Electric - Pros:
It's cool. Lets face it, cowboys, super heroes, pro athletes, and a rock star with an electric guitar epitomize "cool" for a lot of young students. This may be enough inspiration alone to keep a kid in their room for a few extra minutes of practice a day.
Easy on the fingers. The string tension on an electric guitar is much less than an acoustic.
You'll end up with an acoustic eventually. Any serious guitar player even if they start out on electric always make their way to an acoustic. Trust me. I did, and know a number of players that did the same.

Electric - Cons:
You need more than the guitar. An electric guitar isn't much good without an amplifier and a cable. It also can lead to a stable of other toys and gadgets that can distract a beginner from the fundamentals.
It can be loud. While this may not concern the student it may be something that others that reside in the same residence would care about.
