Fun beginner guitar from a pro musician!
Hey there, If you have always wanted to shred like Eric Clapton, John Mayer, Jerry Garcia, Jimi Hendrix, Neil Young, or Gary Clark Jr., this message is for you. If you are new to guitar and you have no idea how the masters make their guitars sing, and you think that's the coolest thing in the world, but don't have the first clue how to do it, keep reading. I structure my lessons in a really fun and approachable way to learning how to be a guitar *player* and not a dabbler. I first picked up a guitar 20 years ago and have tried and failed many times and ways, but along the way have picked up some really good instruction, hours of fun playing, and lots of new musical friendships. I've played in a number of bands and currently play with a number of groups in the SF Bay in California. I'm a working musician and also a student of music and performance. My lessons are highly specialized for beginners. I will show you what gear to buy, all of the proper techniques to make you look and sound like a professional blues and or rock player. We will tackle everything you need to know from day zero to advanced, professional techniques at your pace. Lessons include Zoom instruction, personalized practice videos, and 24/7 text chat for help. Let's get you up and rocking 🤘
About Conor G.

I'm lead guitarist & songwriter for a touring rock band based in California. I graduated from Loyola University Chicago with Bachelor's and I am currently teaching 15 lessons a week to beginner and intermediate electric guitarists. I'm a huge music fan and nerd, I have a family home in Nashville and some good connections with record labels and promotion companies. I love to mentor students who want to become effective, dynamic guitar players fast if they are willing to work hard. Some of the musical styles I regularly play: rock, indie rock, jam, hard rock, 60's rock. Check out my lessons!
