Anyone had some private time with Mr. Browne yet?

Its 35$ for a hour. I'm interested in trying this, just to see if I will learn some new things, evolve as a guitarist etc.

Do you have to play "live" for your teacher? And does the teacher play live for you? If... Then you're very limited to the quality of your soundcard?

I don't know how efficient lessons over skype are, but I'm still excited.

I thought maybe I could take a lesson with Tymon from Exivious, that would be great!

You must unlearn what you have learned.

What I'm interested in is sitting down with the same guy, at the same time every week, in order to build a solid instructor-student relationship and really evolve as a guitarist. And hoping these guys, being at the level they are, will have patience with their students.

Lessons over Skype also present some serious challenges. I took a lesson with Dave Weiner once over Skype and it wasn't very productive.

Good luck to the team there. I'll be signing up!

You might not get that regularity with the big name guys who will go off on tour but there are plenty of us unknown guys whose careers are in teaching music so there should be plenty of people with whom you should be able to develop productive consistency.

I'm looking forward to seeing who I can find for guitar, based on ^. I'll definitely check your page out tomorrow, when I've done my chemistry exam I'm booking vocal lessons with Rody Walker perhaps next week, my god he has an amazing voice and his lessons sound so insanely fun too.

Anybody whos been taking the lessons got any opinions on this?

And does it work quite well via webcam?

I doubt I would use this unless I had something particular I was stuck with and I wanted some feedback on my own technique, but i imagine that might be hard to pick up on via webcam?

I've found it pretty good for teaching. Unlike Skype, their audio and video are transmitted simultaneously, to remove lag between the two. Speeds are good and it's all very reliable, I find.

Bit of a necrobump, but I'm also curious as to anyone who has taken lessons and how it went. Got a lesson with Frank Aresti from Fates Warning coming up soon.

I had a lesson on production (synth creation, layering, etc) with Lee Duck, we used Skype to share desktops back and forth it worked well.

Just had my lesson with Frank Aresti. It was a great lesson, but for some reason, he couldn't hear me on his end, despite it saying my mic was working fine. Hoping to figure that out soon, as I want to book another lesson with him, plus I hit up Spencer Sotelo.

i've done some lessons through bandhappy and it's worked really good. my complaint is most of the teachers i've tried contacting for lessons never get back to me or anyone else for that matter. my suggestion would be if your not gonna teach take your profile down and stop wasting peoples time.

ive had a few lessons on bandhappy already (navene koperweis (ex-AAL drummer/fleshwrought guitarist), jason richardson (chelsea grin/ex-Born of Osiris), Nick Llerandi (Ever Forthright) and Marc Lambert (Painted in Exile), all have been VERY worth the information shared. The only issue ive had is with relation to the sites built in webcam/chat window. EVERY lesson ive done ended up switching over to Skype since the lag was unbearable (it seems Internet Explorer is suited best for this, but im on a mac...)
aside from that, i will get more lessons as i crave to learn more

I've had a lesson with Mark Holcomb through Bandhappy. It went great! Absolutely love the site and service, although I wish the lessons would be saved/recorded in my profile to re-watch later. I thought they were at first so I didn't take any notes, was thoroughly bummed to find out after that they aren't saved.
