I am very patient and have a great sense of humor. I try to make my lessons fun and productive, you’ll be playing the guitar in no time!

I have been playing guitar my whole life, I can play acoustic or electric and can also teach on both.

I can also help a band sound better, or help someone put together a band if they like.

Some other areas of music I can also teach in is basic vocals, songwriting, branding and marketing music.

I can also record students in Garageband, a recording software on my Mac Laptop. I have high quality recording equipment and can record acoustic guitar, electric guitar and also vocals.

Experience

Lead Guitarist
Feb 1994 - Aug 1998
Fear of Dogs Band

I was the lead guitarist in band "Fear of Dogs", it was a power trio, me on guitar, a bass player and a drummer.

In the tracks on Soundcloud above, I played all guitars, rhythm and leads, etc.

I was recently in an 80's rock tribute band called Soloman Grundy, I was rhythm guitar in that band, that was in 2017.

I am also in an acoustic band, 2 guitars, called Southern Brother, we play Neil Young songs.

My main band today, 2018 is called The Andy Shehan Band, we play classic guitar-oriented rock, and I am playing drums in this band, and also write originals for the band, on guitar. :)
