Have questions about playing guitar?
Meet with David online (via Skype, Face Time, or Zoom) for a private session. He’ll be more than happy to work with you to improve your guitar playing.
Since November of 1999, I’ve written over a thousand articles, lessons, interviews and reviews for Guitar Noise, one of the Internet’s most highly acclaimed free guitar tutorial websites. I also serve as the site’s Managing Editor, supervising all content in addition to the continued writing of his own lessons and articles.
I contribute frequently to Acoustic Guitar Magazine. I’m also the author of several Idiot’s Guide to Guitar books (see below).
Feel free to drop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org anytime.
Time, pardon the pun, marches on and so do my group classes and workshops. Here is the schedule for the next two months, beginning Monday, March 1.
Having spent pretty much all of 2020 (since March) teaching group classes on Zoom, I think we’ve gotten most of the bugs out of the system. The classes are in three distinct formats:
1) Straight lectures. Time is devoted to questions and specific demonstrations in regard to technique or concepts in question
2) “Typical” group classes. “Typical,” for Zoom, is that we start out with questions and demonstration, but during the playing part, participants must mute themselves as not to disrupt the sound
3) “Showcase” classes. Here, a student gets the “stage” to perform a piece while the rest of the class listens and then, after the performance, takes part in the discussion to help the performer target specific changes that can bring about a better arrangement, performance, or song.
Music theory is often considered a difficult subject. “Idiot’s Guides: Guitar Theory” breaks down music theory for guitar and other fretboard instruments in very simple and easy-to-understand lessons. Content includes everything a budding musician needs to know about notes, guitar tablature, rhythm, chords and scales, and more.
To date I’ve written seven Idiot’s Guide books. The most recent is Idiot’s Guide: Guitar Theory which came out in 2014.
Complete Idiot’s Guide to Guitar
The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Guitar starts at the very beginning with learning how to hold the instrument and covers everything from reading tab, chords, and strumming to playing the blues and rock riffs.

The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Playing Bass Guitar provides a complete instruction program for beginners and helps walk even experienced guitarists through the most confusing concepts.
