I’m just going to take a minute to shamelessly advertise for The School of Feedback Guitar in Austin, TX. I started taking lessons there a few months ago, and I’m now utterly addicted to this infernal instrument. It’s amazing that I can use these QWERTY-seized hands to cause a guitar to make sounds even close to what I’m trying to get it to make. If you are considering guitar instruction in this city, even if you’ve never touched a guitar before (or any other instrument, for that matter), I don’t know that you could do better. Dave Wirth is the instructor; stop by the school’s website to drop him a line.
