Eyonwood.. I know this is 5 years late but for anyone who might have the same questions. Mark Nelson's Jam Play lessons will certainly help. You can watch the video, listen to the midi and slow it down as slow as you want and also read the notes he offers. Especially good as he talks about playing the melody from the specific shord sahapes.

Jeff Peterson has the Cadillac web site for learning Slack Key. Many dozens of songs (maybe hundreds), three skill levels, real-time lessons on Saturday and it's reasonably priced. He also does custom video and tab lessons if he has time (He's done a couple for me that were great on tunes not likely to show up on his regular list). I've been a subscriber for three years. If I'd had his stuff 18 years ago I might be a pro by now (right?). JeffPetersonGuitar.com.

You know Chunky. I've been tempted to subscribe to Jeff's lessons but I havent worked my way through Mark Nelsons yet. i am about 30% through. For me, im trying to avoid my old problems and that is not sticking through to the end.

I really like Jeff's DVD instructional video, purchased directly from him after a concert. It is listed as "beginning" and heaven help me if he ever comes out with an "advanced". I have to set sections to loop over and over to catch the subtle little things he shows in passing.

Ron, I also get the follow-through issue. I suggest that you finish working through Mark's Jam Play lessons before diving headlong into something else. It is so tempting to skip around to the next shiny object.... oh look, a squirrel!

Did you guys see some of the videos being posted on FaceBook from George Kahumoku's workshop this week? They are on the group page, titled George Kahumoku's Slack Key Workshop. I really liked seeing what they had to say and some of the videos were at least fun to watch even though they are being done by their phones. I'd like to see a program if anyone has one.

It occurred to me that while I gave you some information, I never actually answered your original question. I would be OK with Skype/Zoom/etc for lessons (and have even taught a few myself but not slack key). My problem is an erratic work schedule and the inability to commit to a weekly lesson and get in my practice. Some weeks I work 70 hours, some weeks I have very little to do - and there is no way to predict that. With adults, the few guitar lessons I give are done every other week. Life just gets in the way.

I never see any videos on Facebook, as I don't go there - not now, not ever. I appreciate when artists go outside the FB world and put videos on their web site or on YT. I suggest that you search for Fran Guidry and Uncle Led and the many YouTube videos that Fran has posted - suh-weet!

Earl... Oh yes. I have spent countless hours on YT watching Led and Fran amongst others. Thanks for the feedback. Ron
