Hey Marty here,
I wanted to share with you the story of one of my new students,
A couple of weeks back Robert scheduled a lesson with me. Robert looked a little like a deer in the headlights when he
greeted me at the front door. His cocker spaniel was howling and his 2 young children were
screaming over which video game to play. Robert's wife politely said hello & went over to mediate the kid's dispute.
We then escaped to the room where has has his home office, inside
his sanctuary he had a selection of amazing acoustic & electric guitars.

basic solo licks over the chords he played.
Robert said: "Marty this is a blast"

Robert's past teacher's gave him boring scales, it was just like another job.
Since 90 percent of all hit songs from the 70's to today are just 3
or 4 chords with a strum pattern I decided to put together what I
call The RUT BUSTER DVD solution
You will learn to have fun again playing the guitar.
This series inlcudes 3 DVD's jam packed with almost 4 hours
of easy acoustic chord progressions (which is just a fancy name for
