Excellent Teacher! Joe has helped me break through the issues that were holding me back a guitarist. He actively listens and gives great examples of what he is teaching. I would recommend him to anyone studying guitar.

Joe can teach the essentials as well as finer points of style. He helped me to further define my voice on guitar. He has a good grip on melody as well as a load of guitar voicing (open and closed). Joe's sense of humor definitely makes his lessons memorable.
