The guitar has, for more than a century, been the instrument of choice for those looking to woo, busk, rock the basement and/or garage, bare the soul, hide the soul, or just generally to have around for singing, jamming, and making noise with others or by your lonesome. While not totally suited to passenger seat playing (see ukulele), the guitar is the ideal couch instrument.

I can teach acoustic and electric guitar in most of your basic folk, rock, country, traditional jazz, post-traditional jazz, singer/songwriter, and skiffle styles.
