Here is a list of a few things you’re going to need BEFORE contacting me regarding Lessons / Guitar Mentorship & Musical Development / Songwriting and Musicianship Consulting.
- Ability to pay through PayPal
- Webcam and Microphone
- SOLID internet connection
- Metronome (you can use an online one if you do not have a physical one)
- GuitarPro or TuxGuitar (Please have the ability to read the music I give you in one way or another. It helps a ton with learning.)
Once you are ready, we will start by arranging a student interview as to ascertain what your specific needs are on the guitar, to hang out and chat (break the ice), as well as schedule the first appointment.
Currently, my teaching schedule is from Friday to Sunday, from 10:00AM PST until 6:00PM PST.
My current rates are as follows:
Guitar Mentorship & Musical Development: $75USD Per Hour
Songwriting and Musicianship Consulting: $40USD Per Half Hour
I usually expect Mentorship Program students to take a minimum of two sessions in a month, otherwise the time and money investment simply isn’t worth it for the student.
Lessons are to be paid for up front via PayPal as soon as the appointment(s) are scheduled.
I require a minimum of 48 hours notice for a cancellation. If you cancel within that time period you will not receive a refund unless it due to very special circumstances.
If you have cancelled on time, we will reschedule for an appropriate time the next week, or in certain circumstances the next day; schedule permitting.
As well, if you are 15 minutes late for an appointment, I will be forced to reschedule with you.
My rate for guest solos is $250USD.
The price includes 3 revisions as well, as I do believe in serving your vision and your song as well as I can.
You can expect a 2-3 week lead time depending upon availability.
I have my own home studio in which I record my music, and use a Fractal Audio Axe-FX II / Revv Generator 100P / Neural DSP Suites which allows me to give you DI, dry, and effected version of the solo so that you can edit it in in any way you could possibly want in the final studio mixing and mastering sessions.
In this way your band could be on the other side of the planet and could still receive a very high quality solo from yours truly without having to deal with any kind of other recording studio or any of the issues inherent in flying someone out to do a solo.

Guitar Gear Related Video Reviews
I have spent many years on YouTube cultivating an audience that knows my brand and who I am: a trustworthy, slightly excited and talkative chap who plays the guitar with great enthusiasm and love. As such, my video reviews convert many of my audience to real world sales for companies, because my audience knows me to be fully honest. I have reviewed guitar pedals and guitars alike, with amplifiers being a new focus for me going into this year and beyond.
My YouTube Video rates are as follows:
Video Demo of Product: $175USD
Video Review of Product: $215USD
Video AND Demo of Product: $335USD
The idea behind having a Demo of a product is for brand and product exposure – I create brand new music, or use some original music with the product to showcase it’s utility in the real world of a working musician.
It is why some of my demo video’s have a ton more views than even reviews – they show what the product can do in a real mix!
Reviews have been a staple of the industry for years and as such I have also steadily been developing my reviewing style for years.
Again, I have been cultivating my audience for years in a manner that is honest and direct and that converts to real world sales very regularly. I am proud of what I have been able to accomplish with my YouTube channel thus far, and my rates are very competitive in comparison to many others, whilst my video quality is in the upper tier of professional YouTuber’s.
Do you have an idea for a review or a demo?
