Welcome to my new(ish) web site!
I’ll be teaching a guitar class for the California Bluegrass Association on June 12th (my birthday!) It’s called “Putting the Blues in Bluegrass”. Details here.
Thank you to Bluegrass Unlimited magazine for the three page profile of me in their April ’21 issue!
I’ve been using extra “pandemic” time to record more audio content for my books. If you haven’t check in on that in awhile, just go to any book page and below will be audio links. A few more to go though! I think I’m at more than a thousand audio files uploaded now!
I’m excited to announce that with the introduction of this site, I’m now selling all eleven of my books in PDF form. There are now four Primer books, with a traditional bluegrass focus, all carefully thought out for progressive learning in logical and systematic manner.
With the current state of affairs, I’ve moved all of my lessons to online. I’m using Zoom, FaceTime and Skype. I’m enjoying the challenge of figuring out how to get the most out of online lessons. Luckily, I have tons of written material that has been digitized, as well as tons of pre-made audio for students, many already posted on this web site. I also have been making one-off backing tracks for students to play along with and often I make recordings right in the lesson that are immediately emailed out. So it’s got me with my head back in the lesson production business, just with an all new focus!
There’s lots of ways to pay for lessons. My favorites? PayPal (firstname.lastname@example.org) send to a “friend” (no fees!) or Venmo: @Jack-Tuttle-2. Less common, but also available is Google Wallet, Apple Pay Cash and Zelle.
