Student Does Teacher Proud!

I am bursting with pride. One of my students, through the guitar instructional site TrueFire, has just completed the 100-day challenge that she gave herself.  She wanted to learn my guitar solos on “Mean Old World” and “My Baby’s Gone Crazy.” Though she has played guitar for a long time, she was having difficulty getting her artistry to the next level. We worked together to build her knowledge base, developed a solid practice routine, and she took the initiative to…break things down into small pieces rather then trying to tackle everything at once. The results? These delightful 10-second videos of Diana achieving her goal step by step!
