I can answer any questions related to guitar playing in any popular style, which includes; theory, harmony, technique, chords, arpeggios, improv, maintenance (not repairs), buying advice, picks, strings, effects, amps, etc. I WILL NOT answer any questions about appraisals, serial numbers, or anything related.
