|Shane's Guitar Background/Approach|
|I started to play guitar when I was about 8 or 9 years old. I was taught to read music by a very well respected and patient man, Chuck Dudley. He had a studio on Bedford Street in Stamford and my father and I used to go there on Friday nights for our lessons. I was a drummer as well and had a hard time figuring out which I preferred. All I was sure of was that I loved music and really loved Rock & Roll.
After about a year or two, reading music became very difficult for me. I decided to take
I began to realize from just being around these great guitarists that reading music was not essential to becoming a good guitarist. Interestingly enough, many of our musical idols did not know how to read music at all. BB King, Eric Clapton, Jimi Page, Slash, Paul McCartney, Stevie Ray Vaughn- etc. –the list is endless! Most rock musicians play by ear. They know their chords, basic theory and a few scales, but that is about it. You may have heard of the very common music joke, “How do you get a lead guitarist to stop playing?” - “Put sheet music in front of them.”
I have a fast-track method of getting you started in a group setting or with private lessons. I can teach you how to play songs from quite a range of different styles from Katy Perry, Taylor Swift, Green Day, AC/DC, Beatles, Led Zeppelin, etc.
