About This Class

Play or sing along to an abreviated arrangement of Prince's Purple Rain or learn to play the guitar arrangement in one short video lesson. Don't sing or play an instrument? No problem! Clap along, recite the lyric as spoken word or do an interpretive dance!

I call this The Purple Power Chalenge, but it's not a competition! It's simply an invitation to participate in a community of folks celebrating the life of this creative giant and sharing in the sorrow of his untimely passing!

I highly recommend this course! It is fun, easy and Scott gives you artistic license to represent the song however you like, even with another instrument or no instrument. Particularly love the story of how he got Prince's guitar pick. : )

Vintage Blues Guitarist & Guitar Guide

I'm a vintage blues guitarist and guitar guide.​

Lifelong professional musician. Currently teach 45 students each week and perform as a solo and with various duos and bands in and around my hometown of Floyd, VA.

I believe that music is a language and that, like everyone's first spoken language, it is best learned in a natural and intuitive ​manner and used to communicate emotions, tell stories and exchange ideas. Music, at its best, is a collaborative effort, not a competition and it should be cultivated in that spirit.

As a teacher I break down musical concepts and techniques down into their essential elements and provide clear, concise, step-by-step lessons that enable aspiring and advancing guitarists to understand and apply them to songs and styles they desire to master.

I teach in the lesson studio and from the bandstand. Learning to play music and sharing it makes us all happier and healthier. It also builds community and encourages curiosity and tolerance, helping make the world a better place.
