About Me


I will teach you how to improve your rhythm skills to the point where you can take any song and make it sound much fuller than just playing it with a single acoustic guitar. I do this by helping you pick out parts within the song by other guitars and sometimes other instruments, and to blend those into your rhythm.

I do this with all types of songs including classic rock artists and bands, country artists and bands, blues, bluegrass, Irish songs, Christmas songs, Vegas tunes and more.



A Bit About Me




My name is Kirby and I’m originally from the east coast of Canada from a small town in Nova Scotia of about 1100 people on the South Shore. If you blink while passing thru, you’d miss it.

What I enjoy doing is helping folks improve their skills on the acoustic guitar. I love learning new songs
and teaching others. I’m self taught since the age of 7 and I played in a 3-pc band since age 14 and did pubs and bars as a single act for a number of years. I also played in an International Dance and Show band in Germany for several years in the early to mid 1990’s.



Besides guitar, I’ve played bass, drums, fiddle and banjo. I don’t read music and have never taken any lessons, so I’ve had to rely on my ear to guide me in my rhythm skills. I consider myself to be an average singer and my strengths I believe are in my rhythm arrangement. I also retired from the Air Force in the summer of 2007 after serving nearly 25 years I currently reside in Edmonton Ab, Canada.

I invite you to explore the links on this site as I move my existing site to this location as of June 6th 2016. This move will take several months, but this site will be the main site in time. You can visit my other site at learn-classic-rock-songs.com here.
