Check out my YouTube Guitar Lesson Videos and  Join me on PATREON!  Ever since the pandemic, I’ve been posting guitar lessons on youtube (click here for the playlist),  and in ’23 I posted one every Monday without fail (except for Christmas).  Where else can you get chats to get into the FEEL of great bluesmen such as SON SEALS, FENTON ROBINSON, JB LENORE, LOUISIANA RED, LUTHER GUITAR JR JOHNSON, EDDIE TAYLOR, not to mention obscure gems like Calvin Frazier, Baby Boy Warren, etc.   The experience has created a great youtube community of blues freaks, fans and friends.   We share an appreciation of the nooks and crannies of blues guitar, improve folk’s playing and confidence, and have fun doing it– it’s been a great journey.  I’ve started a Patreon page to help keep these free weekly deep dives into blues guitar coming.  The Patreon platform lets you can set your monthly pledge at any level you choose.   Patreon members are welcome to join me for a free weekly Tuesday zoom class, 7CST, which I only miss if I’m onstage or on a plane.   Everyone gets to play and join in on a fun blues chat– check it out!
