Hey everyone! LA native here, started playing guitar almost 30 years ago (wow, really?!? I should be better by now–haha) when I was around 12 or 13 down in Manhattan Beach. Took a few lessons with Deitz Bros. Music, if anyone knows it–but not much beyond just learning whatever songs I was into at the time.
So grateful for Justin making so much theory, technique, and lessons not only FREE… but at a pace that really takes into account how complicated music can be to someone who has no proper training. Most youtube videos, books, etc, have zero hand-holding and tend to skip ahead to concepts that go right over most people’s heads… and it’s so frustrating as you’re just trying to get a grip on one thing at a time.
I’m glad I found this community after so many years. Hoping to make up for all the stuff I never felt like I understood enough to practice over the past few decades. But now thanks to Justin… I can!
Welcome to the community, great to hear from you. I had the pleasure of living in the greater Los Angeles area in my youth back in the 70s. I remember how rare it was to meet someone who was born there. Look forward to hearing more from you, yeah, Justin is the bomb!

Welcome John (albeit quite belatedly! )!
We must be similar age? It is just coming up 30 years since I picked up a guitar for the first time too at 14… Then put it down, then picked it up again, then put it down again… And so on for many years!
Justin has been who’s finally got me on the right track to being properly serious about guitar. I hope he’s continuing to do the same for you.
Enjoy the journey and all the best!
