Hey everybody my name is Mike. I have been playing guitar for 16 years now. I have been playing all kinds of different music ever since. Music is my passion. I have recorded 3 albums and done a national wide tour, playing all over the U.S.A. The bands I have played in are REDFALL, Name, and Dissipate. I grew up playing metal, jazz, classical , and blues. I have played over 1000 shows in the bay area and in the nation, and signed to an international record label "Basick Records". I take what I do very seriously but also I love to have fun!
*** Lesson Details ***
I am a very patient person. I understand how hard it is for somebody to learn a new instrument. I will teach you different things about the guitar as far as how to hold it, how to tune the guitar, different keys that you will be playing in. It is very important to know what you are doing. My job will be to get your moneys worth of your lesson and actually feel productive on what you accomplished. We will also have a lot of fun in the process . I will teach you different scales, mods, keys, tunings , chords, strumming patterns, picking techniques etc etc. You will learn a lot from me as far as guitar goes and let alone music. Although I can teach tablature I do not teach how to read music.
