Guitar Lessons By Joe Billy Clay


About this pro

To whom it mat concern,

Please allow me to introduce myself.

My name is Joe Billy Clay, a professional guitarist from Los Angeles, CA., now living in the Atlanta area. I’m in Atlanta seeking opportunities to offer my expert services as a pro guitarist, in either session work, live shows as a side musician, or teaching and instructing. As for teaching, I am particularly interested in passing on my 30 plus years of experience on to guitarists who are just beginning, who are interested in learning the guitar for fun, or a hobby and recreation, or to the aspiring guitarist wanting to go to the next level as a professional. 

I've had what some might call, a "story book" career. I've toured and or recorded with some of the biggest names in the  music industry. Passing on what I've learned to others is a passion of mine.
