Lessons By Mail


I now have a two part session on Jerusalem Ridge burned to CD. This CD will demonstrate all four parts of Jerusalem Ridge with variations on the melody in two octaves. This session comes with tablature and each phrase explained in detail on the CD, complete with practice rhythm tracks. Price of the session is only $40 postpaid. Just E-mail me about the Jerusalem Ridge Session.

I am now offering lesson by mail on most traditional, bluegrass or old-time tunes. I offer these in either CD or cassette format.

I have an introductory Old-Time Guitar Back-up session available on CD or Cassette for $40.00 which covers old-time runs and strumming techniques, chord patterns, time signatures, Old-time runs and three songs commonly used in Old-Time music. Just E-mail me about "The Old-Time back-up Session".

I have an introductory Bluegrass Bass session available on CD or Cassette for $40.00 which covers Upright Bass technique, chord patterns, time signatures, Bass runs and four songs commonly used in Bluegrass music. Just E-mail me about "The Bass Session".

I also have a few tunes I've developed for my blind friend Dave Mitchell. He feels these would be acceptable to other blind guitarists. These tunes are explained with great detail about which finger and fret is being used because no tablature can be used in this learning process. If you are a blind guitarist, or know a blind guitarist please access the following list of tunes.
