Philosophy

  • Musical skills are acquired through study and practice.
  • Musical talent is inherited.
  • Musical aptitude is not musical talent or a musical skill .
  • Acquiring musical skills requires aptitude not musical talent. Therefore, a lack of aptitude can be offset with more practice and study.
  • Musical talent requires an equal measure of musical skill in order to be fully realized, regardless of the level of aptitude.

All guitar lessons have the above philosophy in mind . For the Complete Guitar Theory Method Book check out the Trane Music E-Bookstore
