Hi Don, welcome. When you say old time songs, do you mean the popular music (Tin Pan Alley and show tunes) the 1910s-'20s?



Do you read music (standard notation)?

Did you take instructions from him ?

Steve has done work on my plectrum ... which was excellent .. and i have taken a few lessons with him to try and clear up some right hand issues ... which i'm working on. His were the first lessons i've ever done on Skype and i'm quite happy about how it all went, how easy it was to set up and how convenient the available openings were.
Highly recommended!
