Having taught guitar for over eight years in several music stores, he still considers himself a student and loves the idea of learning. He was awarded a scholarship to the Atlanta Institute of Music, and has appeared in two different guitar magazines: Guitar FTPM, and recently in Guitar Player. His idea of success is making a living doing what you love, and being a good provider.For more on Jimmy, please visit his website.

    Well expained. I would really like to get it touch with Jimmy, but the link on his website did not work. I work out a Guitar Theory and would like to discuss it with you (him). Jimmy, if you read this, and are courious what The E – System For Guitar is about, please contact me. I am happy to share it with you (or other teachers and musicians) as I am looking for feedback and support. May good things keep happening. Misha
