Personal Statement

I've been a Musician since age 3. Through the years that I was employed as an engineer, my hobby was to break down the knowlege of the guitar and music into the most practical, usable and memorable visualizations and systems to cut all the fat and junk away from the good stuff. You can throw away you 10,000 chords book, because you'll know what each chord means and where it goes and what it looks like all over the fretboard, just like a piano player can. the same goes for scales and everything else. If interested you can learn how to use the fretboard as a musical slide rule or calculator to move correctly from any key to another ect. You can take it as far as you want. I also teach lyrics and song writing and composition and arranging. I can help you set up a home studio and point you towards the best software to help you. I stay in touch with what is the best software, even the free stuff that works.
