    Hi everyone, I am Alan Wayne, currently living in North Palm Beach, Florida.

    One day, I was asked what I was doing, and sheepishly replied “playing air guitar ” I was told that I was terrible.

    Armed with that knowledge, I got a guitar, and lessons. Being told I can’t do something, has been known to motivate me.

    In fact it has been a long slow journey , and it was professionally confirmed- I am not suited for air guitar- I am however enjoying learning a little more each day on my old telecaster and newer acoustic .  Found that I really enjoy playing blues as I work towards my goal of bringing my guitar and story telling to hospitals and other facilities.

    Professionally I coach grownups how to ask better questions for goal setting and problem solving.

    What attracted me to Tomas was a tag line that said ”  guitar teacher for grown-ups”  . I was a grownup looking for a teacher. I also have a very short attention span.   Watching a lesson,   I actually felt that he understood what  I needed to learn and in a way that I could have fun as I progressed.

    Wishing everyone well-

    Hey, Alan! Great to meet you.

    Thanks for sharing your story and reasoning behind joining Tomas in your adventure.

    It sounds like you’ve made good use of your time progressing in things you love to do.

    I hope to catch up and keep up…enjoying and playing.  : }

    Hi again Alan,

    I’ve got a live training (as in live online) this Thursday. Hope you can make it.

    Even if you don’t have questions now… sometimes listening to other people’s questions will help with things you didn’t know to ask. Also I have a presentation that your find very helpful in the beginning.

    Hi Alan,
    Thanks for asking.

    The best way (because it will stay the same for future trainings) is to go to the Live Training page from the link in the sidebar, then click on the title of the current training on top.

    Watch this:

    Thank you for a wonderful lesson tonight.

    I noticed that after following your suggestions as to technique for strumming and watching you,

    I was able to maintain the same timing by copying your motion without looking at my guitar.

    Definitely a win!

    Warm regards,

































    for me, the time was perfect.
