Default Gary Chaffee skype lessons?

So, I was wondering if anyone has tried some Skype lessons with Gary. Itís not ideal and I know thatís why he sort of held back on doing things that way. Being cost prohibitive for the average European musician and music student I guess thatís why itís now an option.

I would much prefer going to Boston, spend a week with Gary, then some time with Henrique and Mr. Michaud while enjoying the seafood and trying out Shane's entire snare wall, but itís not really an option for me until Iím employed full time again.

Anyone tried it?

Default Re: Gary Chaffee skype lessons?

I chatted to Gary about this after my YouTube series on his books. He originally declined, saying he didn't like the idea of doing Skype lessons. A few months later he emailed me and said he'd decided to start offering them. I haven't tried them, but was considering it. He seemed confident they could work, but had the usual disclaimers about sound quality and internet connection.

I think it would be worth it just to chat to him for an hour.

Yeah. I'll give it a try.

Obviously, being there in person for a long time and having him up close seeing everything is a different thing.

It will be more dialogue and concepts, I guess.

Once past a basic level what one would really want is some real attention to detail on every level, so hopefully my economy wil soon be in order again so I can do that.
