Has anyone ever taken Skype lessons from Rich? His online material is great, so I thought this could be a good option, but I'd like to hear from someone with personal experience.
Yeah, those Yosemite camps look great. I have very fond memories of NGW Jazz Summits with Jody Fisher, Mark Dziuba, Tom Dempsey, and others.I haven't but I've gone to the Yosemite Jazz Guitar Camp twice and look forward to going again this year -- he runs it and teaches. Very mainstream jazz oriented. Rich knows so much, it's hard to fathom. And he can distill it down very effectively. I've gotten a lot from him, particularly in terms of different concepts of comping and improvising. There are a lot of video lessons he's done too -- I've gotten a couple of those on DVD. I still haven't mastered everything in those....

I have a few of Rich's arrangements and lessons. All good stuff. Highly recommended.
I appreciate the insight and I will certainly take that into consideration. He ain't a young pup anymore.
Do you recommend any of his CD's?
