Introductory Lessons.

You must pay by the first lesson and a one day common courtesy cancellation/postponement is required. No exceptions. 

You start from scratch learning scales, tecnique and common american folk songs. If you play guitar, this program can teach you how to use a neck rack like Bob Dylan, Neil Young or your favorite blues hereoes like Slim Harpo or Jimmy Reed. By lesson 4, you will be introduced to bending and some basic blues techniques. However, if you can already play, we can formulate your lessons to your skill level and what you want to get out of it. What ever your goals, we promise to be able to help. 

Mentorship Program:
