Jazz Guitarist Rory Hoffman

"Holy moly... Astounded at his creativity in spite of his disability... Rory seems so unencumbered by any obstacle." - Brad Paisley
"Within five seconds of listening to and watching Rory Hoffman for the first time, I was transfixed," - Keith Urban
Rory Hoffman was born blind so he never saw anyone play the right way. He is entrenched in what guitar instructors would deem bad habits and improper techniques. But, he's also as exciting and inspiring a musician as Nashville has seen in years, a dynamic player who is dropping some of the most famous jaws in Guitar Town.
Rory will be with us for a very special edition of Live Lessons to show us a little bit about Jazz guitar as well as kick us all in the pants about ever complaining about how difficult it is to play guitar.
Giveaway! During the Live Lesson we're giving away a guitar, amp, cables and more!
See you there!

2010 Fender American Standard Strat 3—Tone Sunburst — Maple Fretboard
2009 Catalina '63 — (This is a little beach guitar. Consider it the "stunt double" for the Martin. It takes all the abuse and I don't stress about the scratches and dings.
I have a borrowed George Dennis — "The Blue" amp. And, I bought a Soundseat before they went off the radar screen.
Favorite style(s) to play: Rock, Blues, some Country. Looking forward to tackling the Blues course.
