I like to help out other people and help them learn and grow as musicians.
I give students a survey to find out exactly what they are looking to learn before I teach them.
1 year of music theory at Valley State University, North Dakota.
30$ per hour/20$ per half hour.
From playing music and helping out other people into music.
Mostly new guitarists.
I saw Calvin Johnson of K Records perform last night. He has always been an inspiration for me as a successful independent musician.
I am into looking at the guitar in unconventional ways, but I know a lot about how to do chords, scales, playing by ear and composing as well.
You need to have a guitar.
You need to put the time in and practice regularly. The more you practice, the better you will get obviously.
