Lesson Details

Country Guitar

Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced
Because of touring and recording for decades, I've got whatever you need related to acoustic OR electric guitars. They are wonderful instruments and their creative potential is limitless....and ALWAYS exciting and inspiring. I teach you right out of my studio where I'm, most of the time, recording a brand new song for my next album RIGHT THERE. If I can do it, so can you....and I'll teach you how.

Teaching since:

I've been a touring, professional singer/songwriter for decades, My guitars and I have serenaded folks from Vancouver to Romania and most places in between...except for the Atlantic OCEAN, of course!

I work in my recording studio, where I'll teach you from, most of the day, but I always keep a FEW spots open for students. I believe it's a great way to give back to the community and show gratitude for all that I've been given.

Do you wanna get skills and possibly turn a fun hobby into a potentially awesome career? Then take it outta the case! Let's DO THIS!

Trees like music too.

In the rehearsal room of my studio....hangin' out with a few friends on the wall.  ;-)

Playing & teaching multiple instruments, like the drums, helps keep the saw sharp. Plus Gabe says it's a TON OF FUN!
