I know one of the previous recipients of this award and she had such a wonderful experience at Pittsburgh Guitars. Instructors are very helpful and encouraging, and I know the student learned a great deal and had a lot of fun. I definitely recommend that students apply!

I am not a picker, I love rhythms. As I play around a chord progression, it gets more intricate because I do get more into the music. I had been through this site: http://www.guitarists.net/guitar_lessons/ I love messing with the variations and need your help please...I'll remain grateful..
