Hello: My name is Scott Robertson.. I've been gigging out for 30 years and teaching for 25. I love teaching the guitar...It's supposed to be fun and I try very hard to keep it that way. I started playing guitar back in the late 60's. I was inspired by friends who turned me on to local and famous guitar players of the day. I've always tried not to limit myself in the styles I wanted to learn. I enjoy Hendrix, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Eric Clapton, Billy Gibbons, Jimmy Page, David Gilmoure, Steve Vai, Roy Clark, Brad Paisley and many many others. I was not in to learning how to read music. I wanted to play and play it the right way. With all the proper techniques and phrasing.
So, early on, I developed "my ear" for really capturing the essence of what the guitarist was saying with their style. At the age of 52, I still don't read one note of music. I simply listen to a song, and learn it the way the originator layed it out for all of us to enjoy. You can hear my playing samples under the tab of "Playing Samples". For the last 30 years I've been the lead guitarist in a band, sometimes two bands at a time. I must be doing it right. I teach out of my home studio in Manassas, VA.
