"Learning can be FUN! "
I have been playing guitar for over 10 years and I have been a member of several fun and thriving groups as well as a happy and humble participant singing on the beach around fire or at a party.
I am well versed in many genres, songs, music theory, scales and accompaniment.
Allow me to help you reach your guitar playing goals, whether it's playing a long solo or just strumming with the sing-a-long. You'll learn mechanics, tuning, MANY chords, scales and more - let me know your guitar goals. It could also just be for pure playin' around and fun!
