Knowing these patterns of finger shapes makes it much easier to quickly find the chords you need in order to be able to:
- accompany other musicians
- add double stops to your solos
- and do it well, no matter which key you’re in.

Four lessons (Facetime, Skype, or in person in Seattle)
We’ll walk through the book together and make a plan for how you can practice and implement the material. Then, we’ll have a few more lessons so I can answer any questions that come up and help you start to integrate these patterns into your playing.
One month email/video exchange lessons
Not as weird as it sounds! This is the same as the “four lessons” option above, except we don’t meet at scheduled times. During the month, you can send me as many emails, videos, audio, etc as you like. I will reply thoroughly at least once a week, with whatever combination of text and video will best help me convey the information. Bonus: you have every word I’ve ever given you saved in your email box forever, so you can refer back anytime! This is a great option for busy people, folks in super different time zones from mine (Pacific), or people on a tight budget.
One lesson (Facetime, Skype, or in person in Seattle)
We’ll walk through the book together and make a plan for how you can practice and implement the material. Great for the highly self-motivated and/or advanced player. :)
