Just a reminder:

Holly and Doug’s students will be on schedule this week!

Jack, Austin, and John’s students will NOT have lessons this week due to the majority of our students being out of town and rescheduling 100 lessons doesnt make the most sense!

Instead:

We will be coming the LAST 4 weeks of this month INSTEAD of the first 4 weeks.

You will still be getting your 4 lessons for the month, so dont worry!

Starting now, our phones, emails, and social media will be unmonitored for some much needed rest and relaxation for times with friends and family.

Please hold all emails, messages, and texts until July 8th as they could be lost in the mix due to the lines of communication will be unmonitored and/or unavailable.

We look forward to serving you AFTER July 7th!

Thank you for your patronage and have an amazing Independence Day!

Here is some rock'n'roll guitar playing over Hotel California by Eagles, it’s extra Rock’n’Roll because I missed some notes.

I'm playing a really cool 1981 Gibson ES-347 into my Line 6 Helix. I really dig this guitar, it brings a different edge to the way I think, but don't be fooled, it can chicken pick, too!

Share the video and comment if you like it!

A video I did just for fun. I wish I had known that my camera was set to the lowest quality settings BEFORE I filmed this... Oh well, it was good practice, and better luck next time!

Met a new friend while I was out in LA - Mr. Jerry Levine. You may recognize him from Teen Wolf, Born On The Fourth of July, Seinfeld, Will & Grace, or about 100 other TV shows and films. Jerry is also a gifted director and producer for a ton of other projects as well. Jerry and I met while we were both hanging out at @normansrareguitars and he asked me to demo a guitar for him that he bought. It was a humbling experience to say the least, and #JerryLevine is definitely the nicest guy in Hollywood. @ Norman's Rare Guitars

Check out this gorgeous 1935 Gibson Super 400 that I got from @normansrareguitars while I was out in Los Angeles. This guitar is one powerful machine and it plays extremely well.

In case any of you guys are interested:

This is Jimmy Rogers.

Jimmy aka Horse taught me everything I know about music in general. He was a world class guitar player, mandolin player, band leader, business owner, and overall virtuoso musician.

He played country music all of his life, but had one of the most advanced Jazz minds in the entire country. The man was a master of chords, harmony, and was known as having the fastest fingers in the South East.

Jimmy is who gave me my first job in a music store, and the man who taught me how to teach! He is the one who encouraged me to learn as many instruments as possible, and really showed me advanced music theory.

Jimmy took me under his wing and really showed me the way, and gave me a love and passion for music I had never known before.

When my Papa Jack died, Jimmy came up to me, put his arm on my shoulder, and said ‘Darlin, I’ll be your Jack now.’ And He was.

For the last 8 years of his life, Jimmy ran the music store as a double amputee, and only missed 2 days of work, two days before he passed away.

As I release my album tomorrow, I wanted to let everyone know that without this man in the photo, There would be no ‘Jack Ryan’ or Jack Ryan Music.

I love and miss you so much, Horse.
