I will show you how to become completely self-reliant on the guitar, and play in any style you wish. You will easily and confidently:
- navigate the entire fretboard.
- learn songs by ear or written music, either in standard notation or tablature.
- construct and alter any chord anywhere on the neck.
- improvise melodic phrases that sound amazing.
- understand the "whys", not just the "hows".

Overview

When I was the only student in my 5th grade class to ace a musical aptitude test administered by the junior high band director, I began to appreciate the affinity I'd always had with music. Playing drums in school band didn't turn out to be a good fit for me, but then I picked up a guitar and it literally changed my life. It was like a piano that could fit on my lap, and the possibilities it represented were endless.
While I am essentially self-taught, I have continued to be a serious, enthusiastic student of the guitar and its many styles for almost 40 years. I have played in numerous bands, from power trios to large R&B bands with horn sections, and everything in between. Along the way I have taught a variety of techniques to students who appeared in my life at a moment when they were ready to learn, and I was uniquely qualified to teach them what they wanted to know.
Several years ago I decided to organize my accumulated music knowledge and wrote my own guitar instruction book, which illustrates my adopted approach to learning and achieving self-sufficiency on the instrument. It is a method that can significantly accelerate a student's progress toward their musical goals, whatever they may be.
