Lessons are relaxed and fun. I find out what you want to learn and we go from there. I teach on a song-by-song basis so you won't be spending all your time playing scales (although I can teach those, especially if you're learning to play lead). I have a huge file of songs I can teach. Or, you can send me a video link -- I learn the song and teach it to you. I can teach you new strums, picking patterns, how to read tab, to read notation, and much more. All of my lessons are step-by-step. I never rush and I answer your questions at each step.
