Hello, my name is Ivan Max, and I've been playing guitar for 30 years. I've been teaching guitar for 20 years. And you know a lot of the things I've learned, I've learned by myself on my own, through the books that I could get my hands on or the magazines that I could get my hands on. So I really had to figure out everything on the guitar, and I think that helps me present that to you. So hopefully you'll enjoy these videos, and we can take some of these concepts and really help you enjoy the guitar.
