Derryl Gabel: bespoke lessons to order

Hi Guitar Friend!

Just wanted you to know that I still have some openings for online guitar students.
A web cam, mic, and headphones are required and Skype or Windows Live Messenger is preferred. If you are not sure how to set that up I can help.
You would get the transcription file of the material covered in Power Tab or PDF whichever you prefer.
I'm also offering down loadable video lessons covering any topic of your choice if this is better for you.
Let me know what days and times are good for you as well as your time zone.

Best regards,
Derryl Gabel
