Introduction: (Located in Nevada County California for in person lessons) Hi, my name is Gabriel and I teach guitar clawhammer banjo, mandolin, and ukulele! I work with my students needs, and help them find their own voice on the instrument. Creativity and fun is highly encouraged!! That’s why we call it “playing guitar” and not “ working guitar” I teach all levels styles ranging from fingerpicking, Travis picking (folk Americana classical) chicken pickin (country), flat picking (bluegrass) economy picking(fusion jazz) , alternative , sweep picking and most styles of guitar. I’ve been playing music for 20 years, and have been performing for 7. I’ve studied music theory at sierra college for 2 years. I played with the band Brotherly Mud for 3 years who are now a Sammy Award winning group, Grammy award winning artist Billy Bensing, and currently play in a bluegrass band Caltucky. I find my students needs and work with them! Whether it be theory, songwriting, technique or improvising. My guitar and mandolin influences range from: -David Grisman -Billy Strings -Doc Watson -John Fahey -Tony Rice -Brent Mason -Jerry Garcia -John scofield -Hendrix -Tosin Abasi -Marty Friedman -Dimebag Darrell -kirk Hammet -SRV -Danny Gatton -Johnny highland -Joe Pass -Bird So forth and so on. Sign up with me, and let’s rock out !!🤘🏼🎸🔥

Gabe is an exceptional teacher!! He makes it fun to learn! He has a great personality, very pleasant and easy to talk to! He made me feel relaxed! I was taking 5 string Banjo lessons from him - I would have continued, but found some one in my area for hands-on lessons!!! I highly recommend Gabe - you won't be disappointed!!

Gabriel is the pro I've been looking for! I learned more during our first lesson than a week's worth of YouTube instructional videos. He was able to quickly assess what area of guitar playing I needed help with first. He optimizes the time we spend with useful exercises that increase my knowledge and skills. I would recommend Gabriel as a guitar instructor to anyone series about playing.

Details: 45 - 64 years old • 0 - 2 yrs of formal training • Yes, can read guitar tabs • Acoustic • Rock • Country • Blues • Folk • Yes, the student has an instrument • 60 minutes • Remotely (phone or internet)
