My musical background is playing in several rock bands and big bands and then learning classical guitar and having my formal musical training. I have now been a guitar teacher for decades. On the way I have also published several guitar method books, and many YouTube videos and I have now decided to try Patreon. 

If you support me on my Patreon page, I will be forever thankful, and give you access to videos, music, tabs, audio and other instruction material on how to play the guitar in different styles. I'll show you how to get better on this so very cool, but still so mysterious instrument. The music and and tabs will be high quality pfd files written in Finale. The repertoire will be in styles like

  • piedemont blues – music affected by ragtime with an alternating eight bar bass groove over chords like C, A7, D7, G7, inspired by old blues masters like Mississippi John Hurt, Rev. Gary Davis and Blind Blake. These fingerstyle techniques are also used by a lot of modern guitar players like Tommy Emmanuel and John Knowles, just to mention two
  • delta blues – twelve bar blues songs in different keys, tempos and modes
  • slide guitar – how to play slide guitar in standard tuning and open tuning
  • improvisation – learn to improvise by using pentatonic and blues scales as well as modal playing
  • jazz – chords, scales, songs and improvisation
  • music in classical styles – originals and standard repertoire

There are a lot of elements to learn to master the guitar, such as
  • scales – for instance pentaton, blues scale and modes
  • chords – basic as well as chords used in jazz and bossanova
  • right hand techniques – learn several different playing styles: standard right hand patterns to advanced fingerstyle grooves and more
  • slap technique – for the right hand, play like for instance John Mayer
  • strumming – play jazz chords as well as more traditional playing
