Learn to pluck heartstrings with today's side deal: for $30, you get a one-hour guitar or bass lesson from Boulder Guitar Studio, a $60 value. Alternatively, you can opt for two half-hour sessions. Whichever method you choose, local guitar hero Lee Johnson will guide you in the same finer fingerwork that saw the release of two CDs and led him to his recent victory in the Durango Song Expo Song Contest for his pop-country tune "High Heels!"
A guitar instructor since 1995 and a professional strummer since forever, Johnson uses his versatile skill set to teach varying styles to anyone of any skill level. Before starting, students undergo a brief evaluation to determine their current skill level. Johnson will then design a course of action based around individual goals, skills, and preferences. Once you acquire the basics (or already have them), you're invited to bring in your favorite tunes to start learning how to play along. Johnson, a coordinator for Nashville Songwriters Association International, will be glad to help aspiring songwriters polish their writing skills as part of their guitar lesson. Call ahead to schedule.
Lessons are available for musicians aged six and up.
