What's up everyone, my name is Tom Maxwell aka “TomCat” and this is my profile page for BANDHAPPY, a killer place where I can interact with fans, friends and musicians of all sorts and give one on one online guitar lessons, music discussion, songwriting and production.
I've been playing guitar for almost 30 years and have found some great success in my life because of my love and determination for music and my first love, the guitar. I am completely self-taught and spent countless years perfecting my style of playing by learning to play music solely by ear. I currently play for the Hard Rock/Metal band HELLYEAH. I love music of all types and styles ranging from Metal to Blues and almost everything in between and I would love to meet and work with students who are looking to improve/develop their rhythm and lead skills and/or song writing and music production.
• Learn different guitar techniques and how to play them
• Train to learn by ear
• Fine tune lead and rhythm guitar techniques
• Song writing – writing hooks and developing riffs into songs
• Discussions about the realities of the music business and steps to take to get your music heard.
• Learn what it takes to be in a working/touring band and the ups and downs of being on the road.
• Learn to play your favorite songs (Metallica, Slayer, AIC or whoever you wish, just ask!) HELLYEAH and NOTHINGFACE songs as well
• For Beginner to Intermediate players
I’m confident that with a serious attitude and willingness to learn I can share with you and teach you techniques that will improve your guitar playing and approach to the instrument. The ball is completely in your court to what you want to learn and get from you sessions with me. You can correspond with me directly by using the message feature found on my profile page. Send me a message describing what you wish to learn and I will promptly respond and set up a lesson with you. Note that a lesson must be purchased prior to the lesson beginning.
I currently charge:
$70.00 per 60-minute session
