Like any think that is built a good foundation is the most important thing. I played around with a guitar for fourth years, but did not have a good foundation. I studied under CW for almost a year and it has been a whole new world in playing the guitar. I enjoy playing so much. I may play for hours, But it's in your foundation, the basics. I went to other guitar instructor's in California. I learned simple songs and cords. CW builds a good foundation on scales, timing. You work on different scale patterns. Next thing you know you are exploring you own patterns. You begin to make the guitar sing. I was going to sell all my equipment I have had most of my life, old gibson's and fender's, but after meeting CW I not playing the same old thing. CW has given me the ability to grow and explore, really enjoying playing guitar. I feel very bless and lucky to have CW as a mentor.
