Great Players - A Resource for Students 

In my experience as guitar teacher over the last few years, I've noticed a disturbing trend among our blossoming and impressionable youth - there is a distinct lack of guitar gods in contemporary music!  I learned to love the guitar by trying to emulate my idols - Jimmy Page, Paco De Lucia, Brian Setzer, Marc Ribot etc!  The fact that kids today don't have this kind of inspiration available to them in modern mainstream music is troubling to me.  So, in an attempt to raise awareness among the younger…

Kooliedescope Compilation 

I had the privilege of taking part on a very cool compilation album comprised of may amazing local artist and compiled by Mr. J.
