When I Started Playing, I took Lessons for about 15+ Years with a wide range of Teachers. From Jazz to Rock.
With Getting My First Teacher I remember I had a choice to get lessons from a guy who said I would learn fast to sound like I was playing… or the guy who said this will take some dedication and practice even some hard work but You will learn to play… That is who I chose. I wanted to really play NOT Just sound like it…
Then I went to a Jazz Teacher next,Tony Rizzi a Jazz Cat about 70 Years old at the time or something like that I took lessons from him for 6 1/2 years, he is not with us any more, here is a link for some his work (http://www.classicjazzguitar.com/articles/article.jsp?article=66) Then I went to 2 Great Rock Teachers the 1st was Tony Palacios for 3 years... Here is some of his work...(http://www.metal-metropolis.com/guardian.htm), 2nd Teacher was Danny Gill I took From him for 3 1/2 years. Danny was an instructor at Musicians Institute's G.I.T. for 13 years. He was a member of the hard rock bands Hericane Alice, Medicine Wheel, and Speak No Evil. Written Instructional books etc.
Then I went to GIT... Another Great experience...
Played in a Number of Bands over the Years.
