Denver Guitar Orchestra


Join Our Email List

Learn to play fingerstyle and classical guitar the right way (the slow difficult way) for free. You’ll get the news, you’ll get sheet music, you’ll get inspired. And if you ever decide playing bagpipes makes more sense, it’ll be easy to unsubscribe.



We are back in business. All times are Denver Time.

    • We will probably have a concert in early February
    • We will have Spanish-inspired guitar starting afterward

If you want to participate by private video chat or in-person private lesson, here’s how:

  • Make a phone video of you playing the song. It does not have to be great.
  • Make sure the video includes both of your hands.
  • Don’t worry about trimming the ends of the video unless you want. Keep it simple and raw.
  • Upload a copy of your video to Dropbox using their app on your phone, or upload it to YouTube as an unlisted video. Make sure you’re using wifi as it eats up phone data pretty fast.
  • Send me a link to your video.
  • If you’re not sure about the steps to use the technology, send me an email and I’ll help.
