I would like to announce I am available for lessons or technical consultations via Zoom or Skype. My rates are very fair. I would accept payment through PayPal or Revolut.
I cannot currently commit to regularly scheduled lessons. Instead, I am available for standalone or sporadic lessons or technical consultations. I am based in Ireland (GMT). I can try to accommodate your timezone and schedule to arrange mutually suitable times.
Many of you are familiar with the posts I have written on this forum. You may have also seen some of the lesson videos I have made and shared here.
For those of you who less familiar with me, I have earned a reputation for having a critical eye for details and for thorough analysis. I have been playing guitar (electric and steels-string acoustic) for over 20 years. I developed a high level of playing technique as a teenager, and my technical development has continued through careful study of my favourite players (including Eric Johnson, Allan Holdsworth and Shawn Lane) and through learning to imitate their methods.
I have developed an understanding of the anatomy of the hands, and I have learned how our anatomy impacts upon our guitar playing. In particular, I’m known for my study of positioning and mechanics for the fretting hand, including efficiency concerns and optimisations.
I have limited experience as a guitar teacher, but I am a university lecturer by profession and I have a lot of experience in teaching and explaining complex topics and ideas.
If you have any questions, please feel free to ask.
