Shred Guitar And Jazz Concepts

I have been playing the guitar for over 20 years. I graduated from Musicians Institute in 1988 where I had the opportunity to study and learn from the best musicians. I love all music especially Rock, Blues and Fusion. I have been teaching guitar for many years and enjoy sharing musical ideas. Teaching the guitar helps me in many ways and I learn about my own strenghts and weakness. I look forward to meeting with other musicians and sharing the music. I welcome all feedback and suggestions, please visit my other social media pages:
