Undercover Blues Band

Igor Abuladze - bass/vocals
Curt Golden - guitar/vocals
Bill Rieflin - drums

Well, once again Bill has decided to go on tour with King Crimson. Fair enough. I love Crimson, and I'm looking forward to seeing them in Victoria next month. But, that also means that UBB is on hiatus. We'll let you know when we kick back into gear 

You can follow us on the Undercover Blues Band Facebook page.

And of course, the recording from Igor's  house concert is available for anyone to listen. Click on the photo below, and you'll be off to Soundcloud and the entire show!

Guitar Instruction

With the guitar, the best thing we can do for ourselves is learning how to learn. Then, no teacher and no method can hold us back.

CURT GOLDEN is offering private instruction in Seattle, for beginners through advanced players. The primary focus of the approach used is HOW to play, rather than WHAT to play, with an emphasis on mechanics, fretboard knowledge and ear training.The aim is FUN and an outlet for our CREATIVITY, and together we can put together tools for just that.

Curt Golden is a guitarist, instructor and performer with more than 40 years experience; proficient in many styles. He is a graduate of the Berklee College of Music, and for the past 31 years has been an instructor and mentor in Guitar Craft. In 2010, Curt helped to launch the Seattle Circle Guitar School, bringing high quality guitar instruction into Seattle elementary schools.

Visit my Guitar Instruction page to begin exploring how we can work together to realize your guitar playing aspirations. Feel free to email me with any questions.

Remote Lessons
via Skype

I am now offering lessons via Skype. About a year ago a student who lives in Colorado talked me into giving it a shot, and it is working very well.  I now have a number of full time students who work with me in this way. Video lessons have proven to be of particular value to students with an interest in  Guitar CraftGuitar Circles, the Guitar Craft Standard Tuning (aka "NST"), and the Orchestra of Crafty Guitarists, since authorized instructors are few and far between.

So, if you are out of the area, or your schedule makes carving out the time for a commute into Ballard too difficult, why not try it? 

Payment through PayPal, and we're good to go! Email me if you would like to explore this further.

Any time is a great time of to begin something new. Maybe you or someone you know has been considering learning to play guitar?

Complete beginner?

Been meaning to dust off that old instrument and pick up where you left off?
Let's get down to work!

Already a player, and feel that now it is time to kick things up a level?
This could be the perfect time to make that happen!
