About Paper...


Elsewhere on the site I talk about my views on tablature. I think its the worst way to learn, but I've come to soften my view over time. I was teaching completely paper free, but have come to recognize that all folks just aren't ready to trust their ears and eyes. I won't discourage you from jotting down notes, and I do even have a few tag sheets with a sort of quasi tab that I distribute. One thing I can't do, though is help you with tablature that you've gotten somewhere else. Sometimes students will come in with a sheet of tab and ask if I can teach them the song, or if I think it's good tab or not. I don't use tab myself, and am very slow at reading it. Moreover, I'd have to learn the song first, then teach it to you. So, please leave your tab home. I can only teach you what I know.


What Do I Bring?


The best method for getting stuff home with you is to bring a thumb drive of at least 20 gig size. I video all the songs and tags, and will provide you with the full library of videos. Some folks will video me using their phone, and some will make digital sound recordings, but I think the best way is to bring a thumb drive. We can even video oyu playing so that when you get home you will be reminded.

Camps will be scheduled separately, as well as paid for separately.. These will be announced via email giving you a chance to sign up.
