Christopher Schlegel's guitar lessons

Christopher SchlegelChristopher was born with music in his bones. At the wee age of 5 he built a makeshift podium so he could pretend to conduct to Tchaikovsky. At 6 he was making guitars out of yardsticks, rubber bands, shoeboxes, and twine.

40 years later, through The Ramones, Kiss, and Hendrix, to jazz, blues, and other areas of rock, and a BA in Music with emphasis in Applied Guitar, Christopher is still at it, composing music and teaching. His encyclopedic knowledge of music and the guitar makes him an essential guide and mentor on the Guitar Tricks forum and as a teacher in our tutorials!
