Before Learning Guitar Now launched in March of 2008, I started recording a few open e tuning slide guitar lessons and putting them on YouTube. I also started working on a DVD about open e tuning slide guitar and was about ready to launch the website.

Right after Learning Guitar Now went live, the Gibson Guitar Company contacted me through YouTube and wanted to know if they could use some of my slide guitar lessons on the Gibson Lifestyle section. Needless to say I was ecstatic! Gibson makes some of my favorite guitars, and currently I own the 61 SG reissue, ES-335, Les Paul, and a Hummingbird. These guitars sound amazing and are worth every penny I paid for them!

I am very honored to be on and look forward to playing Gibson guitars for the rest of my life.
