Joe's students are not beginners. His teaching style is best suited for someone with at least basic chording and single note facility. While knowledge of music is not required to play the guitar, Joe works only with people who have some knowledge of music (an instrument in middle or high school for example).
Improvisational soloing is the centerpiece of Joe's curriculum and to that end melody, harmony, note choice, rhythm, and mindset are examined in detail. Playing technique, equipment maintenance/deployment, and effect use round out the package.
