EXPERT TUTOR - I make any subject easy!

I've been playing guitar for 17 years. I play electrical, acoustic, and a bit of classical guitar. I am well-versed in chords both common and obscure and have a working understanding of music theory. I play many different styles of music, from religious folk to heavy metal and everything in between. I have performed in bands, at open mic nights, and at private parties and events. I can provide audio/video samples upon request. As a guitar player, I'm constantly teaching and tutoring others in the instrument as I believe sharing music is integral to being a musician. [more]

Striving for a deeper understanding

I have been playing Guitar for over 10 years in a band and as a solo practice. I understand musical theory to a point of near complete understanding although the upper echelons escape me such as composing symphonies and the finer details of jazz soloing. I can explain the guitar neck, mechanics, chord structure, and pentatonic patterns in an understandable way for advanced or beginner guitarists. As an artist I've always been fascinated with trying to grasp a deeper understanding of things by finding analogues to problems and gaining insight through that. The reason is i have something called [more]
