I'd like to get to know what you want to play and go from there. I'll start with some basic chords and progressions and then add in some scales and theory.
I am an IT professional but I'd like to help people interested in getting started learning guitar. I started playing over twenty years ago and I love it. I teach a couple of people in my neighborhood and I'd like to expand and share my knowledge.
