Sorry to be so long in answering.
I am in the middle of a bible study on the power of words. I'm not going to say that you can just tell your hands they are fixed and poof! Healed, but that IS what the bible teaches us. …"
"Haven't been on here in a while. Pretty busy with all the things going on.
I have Guliani's studies and I use them also for my students, but I like to start them off with some music. The faster we get to playing some songs,…"
"One box pattern won't do what you are asking.
Tell you what, I'll give you my email and you send me a neck diagram of the entire major, minor and, pentatonic scales and I'll show you where you are getting confused and why.…"
"As I see it, you need to understand what is commonly called 'The Nashville Numbering System'. Let me cover it very quickly. If you get this, what he is teaching you will suddenly become clear.
If we are going to…"
"No wonder you're confused. I just watched one of the videos from them and he jumps from chord to chord without making it clear he is doing so. He had me wondering what was going on for a couple of minutes. His teaching style is the problem, not…"
1. I'd really love to know what program you are talking about.

"Nothing wrong with Good Riddance. Its a fairly easy song, even for beginners.
Almost all beginning students have trouble with timing. It keeps them from the successful accomplishment of many basic practicing goals. I strongly…"
Your students problem is fairly easy to solve. He has no timing skills. Get a metronome and do some pattern studies for a month or so and I bet that fixes his ability to play. If you need some help putting some patterns…"
"The only problem with anything FREE is you're going to get people that think they might want to learn to play. Out of 100 you might actually get 1 or 2 students worth having. If you're not paying for it, it won't mean…"
"I use my professionally. I play at least 1 gig a week, and we are planning on starting more pretty soon.
I rent my place so I can't put it on my current insurance. And if something were to happen (God forbid!) I could walk in to a…"
"This can be a very good thing. I would take the added precaution of insuring each one. You can get insurance for the lot at a really good price. I have $20k of insurance on my Takamine and it costs me about $130 a year. That…"
"I sit mostly on the students right so I can see their hands. When I sit that is... I also move around the room and have a spot behind the students fretting hand where I stand sometimes. I simply can not sit for that long all day. I…"
