Guitar Book online- This is an online publishing of my first book. It may take awhile to get all of this online. The 1993 version was done with hand drawn graphics. There is a new edition in the works. This will be free as long as I can pay for the web space. I can't believe it's been 7 years and I still haven't gotten around to doing what i intended. See below about the book.
Upcoming Workshops- I teach workshops on guitar along with a few other people in the Northern Virginia (USA) area. This is a listing of dates, locations, and prices.
Workshop descriptions- This is a description of the major workshops given.
Elements of Intermediate Guitar- I wrote a book back in 1993. A few copies are still available for $20. But I'm working on a new edition, and a sequel is due soon. I'll have a page with more information soon. I'm finally after several years beginning to do layout on the new edition, which will hopefully be out this year. After that i might just put the old version in .pdf format on the site.
A cd is in the works !!! Six songs have been completed so far. More info to follow (this project is currently in limbo).
Upcoming in the next year...(from 1/09 - 1/10)
More online support for material covered in the workshops, improved layout, audio clips and animations, and who knows what else. Video lessons are in the works!
Guitar related links- Some links to more free stuff from other people. hasn't been updated in over a year.
