Over the years, I have gotten many many lesson requests. So, I started teaching in person workshops to bring more knowledge to more people. This workshop called "NeverLost Live" is a fully comprehensive 3 day course that literally teaches everything a guitarist would need to know in order to grow and understand on any path they choose. As the lesson requests grew, I knew I had to find a group of people who could teach and communicate the StichMethod ideas thoroughly and passionately. These people, My TA's, have all taken the course and have access to all the answers to the questions you have. If you have taken a live group lesson with Stich and have met the TA's in the lesson, feel free to read their Bios below and start working with them to progress your playing!
If you are an Intermediate/Advanced player and want to put StichMethod ideas into your finger tips with someone who can see the fretboard and knowledge at the same time, then Jeff Good will need to be considered.
While living in Los Angeles, Jeff started out playing in regional rock, bluegrass and country bands, competing in flatpick guitar contests, and accompanying his daughter in national fiddle competitions. After a move to Oregon, his interests shifted from acoustic to the electric guitar, and he rededicated himself to learning practical music theory as applied to the guitar. Jeff is well versed in all aspects of the StichMethod pedagogy: the "Neverlost" concept and the practical application of it as it relates to pentatonic and diatonic scales, modes of the major scale, applied intervalic concepts as they relate to lead playing and chord construction, and the CAGED system of fretboard navigation as applied to rhythm, lead, and modal playing. He also has extensive practical experience with aspects of musicianship relating to playing lead and rhythm in a band context. He is a lifelong Deadhead and major guitar influences include: Jerry Garcia, Josh Smith, Mick Taylor, Dickie Betts, David Gilmour, Tony Rice, Johnny Winter, and Albert King. He currently plays in a blues band in Portland, OR. You can see his YouTube channel at: https://www.youtube.com/user/pickflat/videos?iew=0&sort=p&flow=grid&disable_polymer=true
If you are a student of guitar and need to see how the puzzle fits first and need a gentle and compassionate voice to help guide you through the knowledge and enthusiastic discoveries. Ed Ferguson will need to be considered. Ed has been playing guitar for over 30 years with musical interests ranging from blues and classic rock to folk and jazz. Some key guitar playing influences include Neil Young, Eric Clapton, Buddy Guy and Jerry Garcia. Having spent many years learning how to play both lead and rhythm guitar in a variety of settings, he is proficient in the CAGED system, pentatonics, diatonics and how to approach playing leads over more complex chord progressions.Ed has a passion for teaching, having spent many years doing so in a professional setting, and his enthusiasm for developing others will be evident from your first interaction.
If you are a guitar student and have learning processes that are geared toward engineering, logic and self discovery , then Kevin Ilsen will need to be considered.
Kevin has been playing guitar for more than 50 years. He started at age 10, with 5 years of private classical/jazz lessons, then played some acoustic and electric guitar in high school and college, and when the band he co-formed in college (mostly originals) couldn’t find a bass player, he played bass guitar. After college he returned to mostly playing acoustic “singer/songwriter” covers.
Fast forward to the summer of 2016, when he and his wife started hosting acoustic jam sessions at their house about once a month for various musician friends. When drummers started coming regularly, he switched from acoustic to electric guitar almost exclusively, and around that same time he realized that he had never known about the pentatonic scale! After that, “Take a solo, Kevin” no longer elicited a deer-in-the-headlights look on his face followed by a majority of “wrong” notes landed by his fingers, because the minor pentatonic scale ALWAYS sounds good!
He always loved math, so when he heard about “modes” he dove back into the study of intervals and chord voicings that he started with, and discovered how the pentatonic and diatonic scale shapes all relate to each other and to the “CAGED” chord shapes. Along the way he sampled many different YouTube guitar channels, but when he stumbled across StichMethod (still in its early days), he knew the search was over. Here, he found the perfect combination of practical technique and music theory, delivered in a friendly, unpretentious way by a guitarist who considers himself first and foremost a TEACHER.
Kevin is convinced that if he knew back in high school or college what he knows now about the real relationship between chords, scales, and the guitar’s fretboard, his path in life would have been very different. He’s looking forward to helping you discover where your love of guitar will take YOU.
