Welcome, guitarists, writers, and music fans! Every month you'll find songs, lessons, insights, and, I hope, inspiration on this page.

For more than 30 years, I've combined my twin passions for words and music into a multifaceted career as a musician, author, and teacher.

I'm a grand prize winner of the John Lennon Songwriting Contest, founding editor of Acoustic Guitar magazine, and author of The Complete Singer-SongwriterBeyond Strumming, and other books/videos for musicians. I love helping others tell their own stories and create their own music—through lessons, workshops, videos, music camps, and university courses.

By becoming a patron, you can help me create and share my music and lessons. And you'll gain access to videos, guitar tab and song charts, interviews and how-to articles, unreleased songs, and discounts on books, CDs, private lessons, and online courses.

Your support makes a huge difference for an independent artist like me.
Thank you,
