    James Hickman Folk Guitar Teacher (Shrewsbury) Picture I was given my first proper guitar lesson by my Dad; we played an old folk tune on acoustic guitars.

    Folk Guitar Teacher (Glasgow) Picture Many guitar students avoid learning music theory and guitar tutors often say that it's not necessary to read music if you want to play tunes on the guitar. This is true, and I suppose it goes for other instruments too, but it does impose a limit on how fast you can learn and how deep your...
