This is pretty much the same reason you almost never see a squirrel playing the air guitar.

Ron was the best guitar teacher I ever had. I took lessons in that room and went to concerts at Mirror Image Studios, which Ron owns, many years ago. I took my young son to him for lessons. We got to talking and discovered the same man who made my custom guitar made that Flying V you see in the video. Ron said my guitar was one the top three guitars He had ever played! He asked why I didn't take lessons. So I did. His advice, the best advice I ever got, "hey, forget about all the technical stuff, just learn to play the song and play." Worked for me to this day.

What my son learned from the lessons which He uses till this day, "hey, do you use a Capo for that."

For fun, another really great guitarist I took lessons from for a year.

Then there is my childhood friend who never had a lesson in his life, but made a living at it the entire time.

Holy metalhead, Batman!
