It’s very hard to say, because so many people come on to the guitar scene. I’m no different of a student, and that doesn’t mean I’m always the best teacher out there. But there are some people I really trust and like teaching their students. When you’re in the beginning, it’s easy to fall from “the best” to “the most terrible.” I try to balance myself between the two, but I could lose track of what feels like the “best” one. So I like the distinction between “best” and “worst.”
In my opinion, it’s a combination of teaching ability, enthusiasm and experience. So, if someone feels like the best teacher he can get from me is someone who is 20 years older than he or she is, then I think that’s probably the “best” teacher in his or her field.
But there are so many things that are at play when you read a book, whether that book is on the page or on the phone or whatever. It can change your perception of your own abilities, in a positive or negative way. The book I think would be most beneficial in this regard would be a book where you feel it’s not all doom and gloom and doom and gloom about learning the guitar. It definitely helps you realize that it’s not your fault as much as it’s something that can be shaped and influenced, though you may feel like you are the “perfect person” but there’s something inside that’s not being expressed as loudly as you would like. That was a big challenge in writing this book.
This book may sound like self-doubt, but in reality you are going to have to think about those kinds of feelings when you come back to the guitar. There are a lot of things which you could just “let it go and hope” or “make some changes and make it work out for me,” but you may learn that sometimes it’s a sign of things being much more important to you than you thought they would be.
I’ve heard that a person can die from a broken back and a fall from their roof. I’ve heard that, but I’ve never heard about a man falling off a roof.
So I just went outside to take a photo of myself with one of my favorite toys. It turns out I have an 8-foot tall ceiling fan on the roof of my house and it is attached to a ladder that was rigged in a way that puts it on the outside of the house
