“When my sons wanted to learn guitar, the first and only person I thought of was Gene Ford. I’ve recommended Gene to so many people, beginners as well as professionals who want to improve areas of their playing; all have come away better musicians. Current pop, fingerpicking, chord work, standards, classic rock, acoustic or electric… you name it and he’s the man for the job.”
