I teach guitar classes to senior adults at a local retirement center. Most of my students are over 50 years of age, many of them are in their 60's. I find that so many of them have physical or emotional hurdles to overcome to even learn to play the guitar as a beginner in the most elementary way.
Many of them encounter joint problems in their hands or fingers. I even had one or two students who had parts of fingers missing from accidents. There are…Continue

I'll be honest with you. I have a Love-Hate relationship with my guitar. The title of this blog is "My Guitar is My Friend".. and it is.. really. I love my guitar. Very much. If I had to pick one thing that I would take with me, if I were to go to a deserted island.. well, it would probably be one of my guitars. The second thing(s) would probably be a CD player and a collection of my favorite…Continue

I know it has been a while since my last blog. I am still working on my parlor. Infact, I think I am on the finishing stretch. It probably should have been completed a long time ago. I took some time off to take a couple extended trips across the USA. But that adventure is for another blog.
The body of the guitar is complete. The fingerboard and headstock inlay is complete. Right now I am working on scraping the binding to the body. I find this to be hard on the…Continue

Whenever I’m teaching guitar to beginners, one of the first real stumbling blocks for most students seems to come when they first encounter barre chords. After learning the basic open chords and practicing changing fluently between them, as well as, perhaps, learning a few simple riffs or single note picking exercises, along come barre chords. Most students will have been making good progress up to this point and then ‘Bam!’ – For some it can be like hitting a brick wall. Unfortunately, for…Continue
