Which ever way you choose, this method of learning acoustic guitar is:

Great for pop, folk, folk-rock, country, and singer-songwriters.

Perfect for learning all your favorite songs. I specialize in 60's and 70's songs.

The best for playing guitar to accompany yourself singing or other singers.

More on Private Lessons

What we can work on in private lessons:

·       You pick the songs you want to learn, and we will learn them together. We can work on your favorite songs from artists like The Beatles, Simon & Garfunkel, John Denver, James Taylor, Neil Young, Alan Jackson, Glen Campbell and many more.

·       Learn how to figure out your favorite songs on your own using a special ‘play it by ear’ technique.

·        Chords and Keys – learn about the ‘good guitar keys’ and the 25 chords you should learn to be a good guitar player. With these 25 chords and a capo, you will be able to play virtually any song in any key.

·        Rhythm guitar – learn to use a flatpick and a set of popular strumming techniques that will work well with all kinds of songs.

·        Finger picking – learn techniques like thumb picking with strumming, alternating bass finger picking, and fingerstyle picking to play all those beautiful guitar parts you hear in your favorite songs.

·        Learn to play ‘chord based guitar’. This is the style used by many of the best acoustic guitar players from John Lennon to Paul Simon to James Taylor to John Denver and more.

Private lessons are available online using free Zoom or Skype video calls to anywhere in the world. We will work together to make a lesson plan that will get you up to speed and learning your favorite songs and techniques fast.

Online lesson payments are quick and easy on PayPal using your credit card, debit card, or PayPal account. Click on the PayPal button at the bottom to buy a lesson. Online lessons cost US $30 for 30 minutes or US $50 for one hour. I usually give Zoom or Skype lessons between 3:00pm and 7:00pm U.S. Eastern Standard Time, but this can be adjusted depending on time zones.

You can sign up for one lesson to learn that special song or technique, or get started on a weekly program if you want to really get up to speed fast! It's up to you. If you already have Zoom or Skype, you are ready to go. Send me an email describing what you are interested in learning on guitar to get started.

If you need Zoom or Skype, read on:

How it works:

All you need is a high speed internet connection and the free video calling software from Video Conferencing, Web Conferencing, Webinars, Screen Sharing - Zoom or you can use Skype | Communication tool for free calls and chat which allows you to make free audio and video calls from your computer.

When I call your computer on Zoom or Skype, you will be able to see and hear me on the call similar to what you see on YouTube, and will be able to ask questions and discuss everything using your computer microphone or headset. You don't need a webcam on your end, but if you have a webcam, so much the better as I will be able to see and hear what you are playing too.

You can get started with 3 easy steps:

1) If you haven't already used Zoom or Skype, please download and test your free Zoom or Skype software. After you are up and running, email me and I will set up a time for a free Skype call with you.  Together we will test your zoom or Skype video connection, make a lesson plan and set up the schedule for your first lesson.

2) Use the button below to pay for your lesson with your credit card, debit card, or PayPal account. PayPal automatically takes care of currency conversions for those of you living outside of the USA.

3) I will call you on Zoom or Skype at the agreed upon lesson time, guitar tuned and ready, and off we go!
