Welcome to a new Q and A. For this one, we have Assaf Levavy from LickNRiff.
I don’t follow many YouTube channels but when Assaf puts up a new video I usually take notice. He has plenty of great arrangements which are not only interesting but original too.
He teaches everything to do with fingerstyle and fingerstyle arrangements, as well as improvisation, advanced techniques, advanced theory and cool composition ideas and tools. Check out his channel HERE.
His channel is great for intermediate and beyond guitarists and if you are one of these I think you will love his lessons.
A lot of his lessons take students down different rabbit holes than what I see from other YouTube tutors, especially for those looking to get deep down and dirty with some new ideas.
Anyway, here is the Q and A.
Due to his laid back teaching style, his genuine focus on helping beginners improve and high quality tutorials, he is someone I respect highly. Most popular online tutors, especially those on YouTube say they teach beginners, but often their lessons are too difficult for actual beginners.
This Q and A is one of the most exciting I have done yet. It features Jamie Andreas, who is easily one of the best guitar tutors I have ever come across.
She is one of my favourite guitar tutors out there as she doesn’t bombard people with content and lessons but is absolutely determined to get her students playing with proper technique right from the get-go – saving them years of frustrations that many guitar students suffer.
Billy Watman is a wonderful 15 year-old guitarist from London here in the UK. I first discovered him a couple of months ago watching Guitar Star on the Sky Arts channel.
I was instantly wowed by Billy’s skill and the obvious amount of passion and dedication that came through in his playing. You could see right away that this chap is going to be a star, and a star I wanted to interview for this month’s Q and A.
Since signing to Wild Sound Recordings in 2013, Harry Harris has been building a reputation as one of the UK’s most original and formidable singer/songwriters.
A ruthless guitar player with a voice that moves from the explosive to the intimate, he writes songs that grab you by the scruff of the neck and refuse to let go, with influences ranging from the great American songwriter Warren Zevon to bar-rock band The Hold Steady to Scottish folk singer Karine Polwart.
