Licks & Tricks

The popular “Licks & Tricks” course has been taught for over 15 years. It was first introduced at the initial Georgia Straight Guitar Workshop in 1991, and later implemented at the VSB Continuing Education Special Guitar Program. Over the last 15 years, over 300 players have participated – and raved about it!

“The class was a real eye opener…the magic box is probably the best thing I’ve ever learned…” – John G., Vancouver

“What I liked best about the course is that the material was easy to understand and was well presented. It was an excellent course and it has kick-started my guitar playing.”
– Angela D., Maple Ridge

“I liked the easy atmosphere in which to play and learn. For me the course was very encouraging and I believe it has greatly improved my playing.”
– Tom V., Vancouver

“The play-along sections were great. I just can’t believe how easy it is now to solo over all kinds of chords. This course changed everything for me and gave me great confidence to play solos.”
– David L., North Vancouver

“I wish I had known all this stuff 20 years ago. Why did no one ever tell me this before?”
– Peter M., Vancouver

“Best guitar course for intermediate and advanced players around. Down to earth straight-ahead playing theory and techniques.”
– Sara D., Vancouver

“The amount of material was extremely helpful. The instructors’ enthusiasm made me enthusiastic. It has rekindled my interest in the guitar.”
– Norman L., Vancouver

“The instructors were very well prepared and learning was made easy….I am very pleased with this course and I am very excited about my playing abilities.”
– Alex B., Vancouver

“It was great…the instructor took his time and didn’t rush through the material.”
Melissa R., Langley

“The theory about the magic box is indispensable!. Excellent instructor and course material.”
Jennifer R., Surrey
