    Hey everyone. I am new to BGU and new to the guitar but not to music. I have studied music in my past and can read (not sightread) and understand music theory to some degree. I decided that at some point in my life I wanted to be known as a guitarist (among other things) so I bought a guitar and amplifier and off I go! I have gone through a bunch of online teachers and have taken lessons in person and not one compares to Griff's teaching method and style. It makes sense and is easy to follow. My previous teacher (personal) was a great guitarist but not such a great teacher and now I feel like I have found my home)). Thanks
