Jerry Jennings

Welcome to Guitar Lessons!

Guitar MayThis will be the last month of our beginner guitar course. I’m hoping you guys have found it enjoyable. And most of all, I’m hoping that you have gotten the tools to continue playing. The biggest thrill for me is to find that one of my students becomes a performer or recording artist. Get a vision. Shoot high! Listen to a lot of music and try to learn it. Jam with friends. And feel free to do all the reviewing you need, on our existing lessons.

Sometime in 2013/2014 school year, we plan to do some additional specialty classes if that works out. So please keep an eye out for those. Topics may include blues leads, finger picking, country leads… who knows? Maybe I’ll take some requests.
