My Guitar lessons with John
Ive been with John for getting on for 2 years now and I'm extremely pleased with the tuition he gives.Hes very patient and moves along at my pace, I'm a very slow learner,but when i look back at when i first started learning to what learn't and what i can do now on the guitar,I couldn't be more pleased.
I wanted to learn the guitar as a hobby,John has understood that,and that is how I've progressed.
I couldn't praise John more and would definitely recommend John.
Ive started from knowing nothing and more than pleased with where i am now.

In order to compliment the Mandolins tone, I use a well used accompanying procedure on accoustic guitar which makes an attractive sound combination. I think my student will agree. We are concentrating on "first position/open" chord shapes to match favourite songs which went very well. When Monica, to her satisfaction, has fully mastered all the "Open" chords I would like, with her permission, to progress further onto the second position chords and some soloing in the Country and Western style. All this would be done @ a comfortable pace.
