Is there TAB available for the song lessons if I become a Premium or Premium Plus subscriber?
Unfortunately, no. I am unable to provide a TAB for any song that is not in the public domain (ie. the composer of the work has been dead for at least 75 years). I am aware that many people on the internet, YouTube etc. provide TAB illegally, but I am not comfortable doing that. The videos do go slow enough that tabbing it out yourself for your own personal use as you follow along with the video should be easy. Plus, it has the added benefit of helping learn the music faster!
What is Carl's musical education?
I am a musical mutt. Besides having a slew of teachers when I was a kid in styles ranging from folk, rock, jazz and classical, I briefly attended a conservatory for classical guitar as a teen.
I quickly decided it wasn't for me, so I instead started teaching privately at a local music store when I was 17. At this time I was also continuing my jazz studies privately with Greg Hyslop.
Also, around this time (early to mid nineties), I studied musicianship training (theory and ear training) with the great Dick Grove until his passing in late '98. I credit Dick Grove with my ability to hear and understand music, he was truly a genius.
I moved to Los Angeles in the summer 2000 and quickly sought out lessons with the great Ted Greene. His knowledge was so incredibly vast, it was an honor to be his student no matter how brief of a time it was.
About that same time I dove deep back into my classical guitar studies in addition to studying composition and orchestration. I have studied classical guitar privately with Scott Tennant, Steven Thachuk, Gerald Klickstein and Aaron Shearer. My music composition and orchestration studies where under UCLA professors Dr. Steve Rothstein and Dr. Mark Carlson as well as composer Dr. Susan Hurley.
Since 2015 I have studied the Equal Interval System of music composition under Emmy award winning composer Glenn Jordan.
If I need to cancel my monthly Premium or Premium Plus account, how do I do it?
I will make sure that canceling is as easy as possible. Since there are multiple payments processors on the site, I want to make sure you are canceled with the right one. Because of that, I will cancel your account myself.
Simply send me an email using this contact form. In your message, let me know that you would like to cancel your monthly payments along with the email address your subscription is under. No need to give a reason, I completely understand.
However, if you are canceling due to an issue with your account, please let me know what it is and I will try my best to get everything fixed for you ASAP.
If I purchase a 3, 6 or 12 month subscription, will I be charged again when my subscription term comes to an end?
Nope! All 3, 6 or 12 month subscriptions are non-recurring. When your subscription term is over, your account will just be automatically downgraded to a free subscription. The monthly subscriptions are the only ones that are automatically billed every month until canceled.
