The guitar is the all around instrument
for song accompaniment, but can also be highly melodic. Most of the
books I have encountered deal with one or the other. I like to combine
and alternate these two approaches to the instrument, providing a more
rounded playing. It's important to learn the chords, both in the basic
position, and also up the neck. But melodies give a lot of satisfaction.
I base my flat-picking teaching on Doc Watson's unsurpassed playing.
I also teach finger-picking, which is a totally different approach.
This is based on such greats as Mississippi John Hurt, John Jackson,
and Libba Cotten.
I teach in my
home in Palo Alto. The basic rate is $35 for a 40 minute lesson. Some
flexibility of pricing available.
