Mr. Bell! I might even be able to learn to do this if I watch and listen long enough. Will I need a guitar?

Love you, Brother, and I wish you all the best of God’s blessings in all you do. Keep marching forward.

I have learned more in 1-year taking lessons from Rex than I have in 10 years on my own. Rex’s teaching method is a systematic approach that builds a foundation that the student can grasp fairly easily and master if they put in the practice time…a must for becoming a professional musician.
