As you may know, I run a busy guitar program at a school in Melbourne, I have an active performing career and examining schedule(not during a pandemic) and publish a lot of teaching content on Latin Guitar Mastery.com. I really enjoy connecting with other guitarists who are doing interesting things so I'll continue publishing episodes as often as I can.
