Between 2005-2007 I was the “video stunt guitarist” for the now defunct, yet supremely missed Guitar One magazine. With every issue came a CD-ROM with additional content including video performances of most every figure in every lesson article including my own. At one point the magazine led by editor-in-chief Michael Mueller enlisted me to do a song lesson video on Van Halen’s “Mean Street” for the May 2006 Play Like Van Halen issue. While it was the only time we would do a bonified video lesson on a song it was the first and only time you saw my face and it was the first time I taught on camera… and so it began.
These days I’m a fixture in the world of TrueFire with 27 courses (and counting!) to my name. I cover everything from licks to exercises to jams and more. I even run a virtual classroom and a series of workshops on modes and chops building. You can also see my face on Guitarinstructor.com where I’m a featured instructor doing something I’ve been asked to do since that first Mean Street video – teach songs. Once again teaming up with Michael Mueller and a host of other great people I bring you in-depth video tutorials on some very cool songs that feature some downright awesome playing and songwriting.
