Want to learn guitar in a casual but constructive environment? Try taking a few lessons from Josh Von Mink. When I first became interested, Josh not only offered his advice but actually helped me pick out an acoustic guitar. He found me a sturdy and capable Cort that didn't set me back too much. Then he encouraged me to learn a few things from him.
When I finally got around to seriously wanting to spend time with my guitar, Josh was willing to show me the ropes. He is all about the student learning at his or her own speed. We played a few songs by artists we both liked so that the lessons were immediately fun. When I asked for more structure, he was happy to outline some chords and notes on paper for "homework." You know there is always more to learn, and Josh is eager to see people want to connect the dots and move on to the next stage.
Most of all, learning from and playing with Josh Von Mink is fun because he has a genuine passion for the guitar and the songwriting that follows from it. He's not afraid to push his students to do a little more than they are capable of, but he's by no means pushy or demanding. He shows off his skill so that you know he's a worthy teacher, but he won't make you feel stupid for not being able to do what he's trying to show. Take advantage of Josh's service and start strumming some tunes!
