Dick Gordon Jr Guitar Lessons in Tulsa, OK
In 36 years of teaching, one of the most important lessons I've learned from my students is that raw talent is not necessary to become a great guitarist. Hard work, motivation, and the proper mental attitude are the key contributors to growing and excelling as a guitarist.
You will learn both open and closed (barre and non-barre) basic and extension chords, basic and advanced rhythm variations, and a variety of other techniques that allow you to color songs. For soloing, you will learn how to apply arpeggios, scales, and unique picking techniques such as pinching, percussive picking and pick with fingers. For students who favor styles that employ finger-picking, you'll also learn several fingerstyle techniques and approaches.

Dick Gordon Jr.
I studied guitar under my father, a nationally known instructor, beginning in first grade. By the third grade I was performing professionally. I was taking both guitar and singing lessons and was a trained Master of Ceremonies (M.C.). My father would hold shows of his students performing, and I’d host the show, perform, introduce the players, and sometimes play with them.

Testimonial by Andrew Bennett
When we started, Dick did an assessment of where I was in my talent, and from there we started learning more than just guitar. He was teaching me about theory and was giving me the “why” behind the playing. I was very pleased to gain this knowledge, especially because I knew that it was rare to know without studying formerly at a university.
Testimonial by Adam Polk
I went from viewing guitar as a hobby, to being well on my way to being a legitimate performer with a deep understanding of music theory. I am a much better player and singer thanks to Dick Gordon, Jr. and I hope that I continue to have the opportunity to work with him for many years to come
