As a performer in a blues band, and producer of blues albums I find there's a special place in my heart for the blues. Acoustic, electric, flat picking, finger picking, or slide guitar. Mississippi Delta blues, Texas blues, English blues, Southern blues, Chicago blues, and more. Whether you want to be a weekend warrior who plays around the campfire, or someone who wants to study at a professional or advanced level, we can make that happen!!!! My unique approach to teaching guitar will have you playing guitar on the first day. No joke.

I’ll make certain you're working with the right guitar for you and your size, style etc.. I'll lower the action if the strings are too far from the neck, which is the case 99.9% of the time with nearly all guitars (making it hard to fret a note or barre.) We can even spend 20 min of the lesson changing the strings to one's more well-suited and this will be a necessary skill you will learn. You will be given a step-by-step approach to learning the instrument as a whole, yet in a slow, considerate to your learning pace-fashion..You'll get into it. I'll be giving you different warm-ups and exercises which induce strength & flexibility & knowledge & technique. Learning songs or working on developing your own song ideas Scales, modes, shapes and patterns and how to use them to improvise How to play with soul and not sound sterile or mechanical. Every guitarist must know the blues, It's the simplest yet often hardest genres to play! I’ll break it down for you!

Basic out line of blues guitar approach touching on the I IV V progression and pentatonic scales to play lead lines, solos and melodies. Heavy investigation of note bending, breathing and space. Learning to let the notes "breath" and speak is key to good blues.
