The power and beauty in learning

I love teaching guitar and I especially love it when people smile BIG after learning riffs, chords, songs or solos they thought were unattainable.

I was given this gift recently after my student Jamie got his head and his fingers around the riff to Sweet Child of Mine.   It took a while because he was 8 when he first wanted to learn it and it was slow going.  He’s now going to High School and we can jam this riff around together and it sounds great.  Now time to learn the solo 🙂

This is the kind of thing that makes it worth it,  not the gift necessarily (even though it’s awesome….!) but that a thought was spared to say thanks and that what might feel like the smallest achievement to one person can mean the world to someone else.  This always acts as a catalyst to spur people onto new goals…. enjoy learning!
