About this pro

My teaching approach: Lead guitarist of Atlanta's Moby Dick here to start you off playing Riffs , Solos and Songs that you love listening to. I'll show you the best methods so you can achieve your dream of playing the guitar. You'll start learning many kinds of scales. At this point, learning to play guitar means better finger coordination, and the best way to achieve this is by playing scales. There is a purpose to these exercises that make absolute sense once you have mastered the scales. To generate some excitement in your practice sessions, try playing the scales backwards. Take your time.My influences are: My Dad, EVH, SRV, Randy Rhoads, Steve Vai, Satch,Ricky Scaggs, Roy Clark, Gary Moore, and many more. Music really inspires me. A very good drummer is a key factor in relating to a song.My guitar lessons take place in: The teacher's studioGuitar Lessons with me take place in the following areas: Krazy Al's music store in Commerce, GA hwy 441 My personal studio after 7:00 pm Monday thru ThursdayGuitar Techniques: Guidance In Equipment Selection, Recording and Production, Song Writing, Scales and Exercises, Music Theory, Reading Music, Jamming Skills, Improvisation, Performance, Vocal Accompaniment, Slide Guitar, Fingerstyle, Open tuning, Rhythm guitar, Lead guitarYour first guitar lesson with me might include the following: I show beginners the right technique for sitting and standing that makes things feel more comfortable so the hands have more freedom to work. How to hold the pick,"thumb accross finger". Give you the "Em" chord and a strum pattern. Test you with a drum machine for finding the pattern. Intermediate to advance - knowledge of scales and songs, I'll help you learn that solo you've been wanting to learn.A guitar lesson with me might entail the following: Weather it's acoustic, electric or bass. I will have you do the warm up that I have found to be very promising if givin the time to do on your time as well. 5 min warm up, 15 minutes on chords, shapes.10 minutes on rhythm patterns with a drum machine. (PIT) play in time.10 minutes on how to use what you've learned. I'll offer pictures, session videos, and cd's with my tracks to practice with on your time. Helping you to advance.The qualities I look for in an ideal guitar student might include the following: No matter the age, 5 - 70 years old. If you do your daily 20 minute practice, you will surprise yourself. I'll keep you motivated even more when I feel you're not doing your part at home. Ideal Student- someone who doesn't talk about their day unless it's about something they've learned on their own using my teaching. It's your time and money so use it wisely. :)
