..is a direct method for artists to present their work, and for supporters and fans to DIRECTLY support and fund their artistic ventures and creativity. Please check out my PATREON site (click link above) for electronic music and guitar livestreams, reports FROM THE ROAD, guitar FX/Looping workshops, acoustic performances, live book writing, synth tutorials and workshops, cooking and nutrition levels, music history workshops and more.
LESSONS - Guitar/Theory etc
When I'm off the road, I teach beginner and intermediate guitar and bass, Theory 101, and for synth heads, basic synthesis.
Of course it's been an incredibly challenging 2 years...to say the LEAST. My heart goes out to anyone directly impacted by the madness, death, mayhem, and chaos.
For me it has meant about six cancelled tours, and other stuff that has been postponed and moved ahead a number of times.
Here's hoping the fall 2021/winter 2022 mean a slow and careful, safe return to my main gig -- LIVE MUSIC PRODUCTION
