Teaching since:
August 2009

I've been playing guitar since the age of 11. Have poured through many volumes of material. I have been able to synthesize this in an effort to make things simpler. Most books on guitar are scholarly feats trying to be impressive, often they can lead you in a long drawn out endeavor, only to teach a very simple concept. Everyone has their own way of looking at things, that is the great lesson of art. The most successful artists are original. So my true purpose then, is to help you find your own voice and equip you with the tools you need to express that in a way that is valid.
