On most Thursday evenings I will  broadcasting a live streaming Strumstick lesson 45-60 min length. The link to the stream will be posted on this page. Each lesson will be recorded and available for later viewing.

Here's how it works:
1. I post a link (on this page) to a scheduled YouTube Live Stream
2. At lesson time, you come to this page and click the link to watch the lesson
3. It is a one-way stream, you watch and play along but nobody else can see or hear you.
4. I use parts of a song to show some simple and some more complex things you can do with Strumstick. These things can be used in many songs.
5. If you have a question, and you have a YouTube account, you can post the question and I can see it.

If you can't post, email me at I will answer during the stream if possible, or some time later.

6. If you miss or want to review a lesson, They are all recorded and listed on this page (Scroll down to see). Click the original stream link for the video on YouTube, or view the video right here. 

We will learn a few basics, a few intermediate tricks, and an expert move or two each week. I can say, ironically but truthfully, I've been playing Strumstick longer than anybody on the planet. I have a long career teaching Guitar and then Strumstick, and my passion teaching stuff so it just works, no muss no fuss. Having fun is a key part of this, and so is bringing a piece of music to life!. That's the way we play on Thursday nights. Come join us! 

If you are a complete beginner, Please do these things first for best results:
2. See how to finger notes(and practice a bit).
3. See how to strum the Strumstick, and get familiar with that too.
We will cover all these in the Special Beginners Lesson!
