I am now doing one on one lessons via internet, Skype, Zoom, Duo. This month I'm doing 1/2 lessons for $20 & one hour for $40. E9th, C6th, D13th and E13th non pedal.
Country, gospel and western swing styles. Or what ever you might want to work on. PM on forum or email.
Thanks.

I should note that Johnny is a killer non pedal player as well. I bet there are folks wanting to dive in deep in the E13 tuning Tom Morrell used, Johnny......

Hey Johnny,

Do you teach the Leon McAuliffe E13? Not sure what the difference is between Morrell's and that.......

I may just take a lesson and see how it goes.

Thanks!

Hey folks... I would encourage you to spend a little time with Johnny. Most here already know this but he's been a top notch professional player for many years with tons of experience. He is a wealth of knowledge and if you're looking to learn and "up" your game, Johnny is a great choice!

P.S. This post is totally unsolicited... just a bump for my talented friend.

Buck, I hope you realize that Johnny is not currently in a position to give lessons and is suffering from Corvid19. We all wish him a speedy recovery so he can get back to giving those lessons.

Hi Johnny,
I purchased an E9 GFI III several years ago that I intended to learn to play. That hasn't happened due to a lot of things going on in my life. Also, there are no steel teachers close to me and I would need to travel about an hour to get to one. I do not know how to tune my steel or where to start with it really. I did purchase some books and CDs from the place I bought it from and did initially try to work on my own but couldn't really tell how I was doing or if it was right, so it's been on the back burner. I have a Roland Amp which I was using, but don't know if another Amp like a Peavy would be better.
Just to warn you, I do not have a good sense of timing. My brain naturally seems to be anti-rhythmic, sort of like some people are dylectic. I struggled with this all my life even though I play piano, read music, play guitar, written over 350 songs, use BIAB and record my music and dance. I took voice lessons for 5 years and the college instructor said it's been scientifically proven that some people just don't have that rhythmic tendency. But I think I have improved over the years. I can now usually hear the 1 downbeat.
As a beginner steel player I'm looking for direction as how to proceed loving this wonderful instrument. Thanks. Donna

Did not see the message regarding him having Covid. I hope he's recovering.

Appreciate any other names to contact or direction as a beginner.
