I'm an established composer/songwriter/teacher and I can show you what you need/want to know. I'm very patient, have a lot of experience with people on all levels, and I'm good at figuring out a student's goals whether it's chordal approaches/improv scales/alternative tunings/fingerpicking/strums/etc. My main focus is on developing people's creativity while broadening both their technique and understanding of the fretboard. I've had a lot of success in coaching people on writing music (songs/riffs/larger forms/etc.), but I also appreciate when people just want to learn their favorite songs - it's all good..
