Welcome to the site! Here are the latest happenings, along with some highlights from the last couple of years...
I am excited to announce that my new guitar video instruction website is about to launch!
99 Decisions is a an instructional video course for guitar that takes you from being an absolute beginner to becoming a functional musician. Using a holistic approach, it guides you through a series of choices on what to practice so you will end up with all the skill sets you need to play the music you want to play. Along the way you will also learn valuable strategies that enable you to be effective with all your efforts.
If you already play guitar, this course is great for filling in any missing pieces of your musicianship skills... smooth chord transitions, expanded strumming technique, broader chord & scale vocabulary, learning to navigate the fretboard, being creative with what you knowand more.
“99 Decisions is also scalable so you can easily fit it into your schedule. You can go through all the lessons in order or jump around & explore. This approach keeps it fluid & fun so there’s no stress.
We'll be launching soon, so stay tuned!
