Two of my guitar students played in the QND show. Adam Kirkpatrick, who is turning into a monstrous player, performed "American Pie" and killed it, from what we hear. And Ginny Steinkamp, who took lessons here for about a year, did a duet with her boyfriend, the classic Kansas song "Dust In The Wind." I've seen the Facebook clip and it's stunning - where the heck did Ginny learn that fingerstyle technique? Not from this burned out 80s hairband guy, that's for sure.
|Stretch those fingers to play the C, Ginny!|
Now she's giving lessons and discovering the joy of playing and teaching music, a powerful thing indeed.
Gosh. Where do the years fly by? I seem to remember Ginny wrinkling her nose when she was trying to learn that finger-stretching C chord. You've come a million miles in a short time, Ginny.
How much do you charge for lessons? Maybe this old dog can finally learn that fingerstyle thing you do ....
