As some of you might now, I have just spent 3 days in Holland to learn Gypsy jazz from guitar master Lollo Meier.
They have been the best 3 days of lessons I ever had! Lollo taught me a lot in a very experienced, friendly and patient way.
I have now material to work on for at least 6 months, I am excited about improving my guitar skills and I am looking forward to go see Lollo again for more lessons 🙂
I would strongly recommend to anyone to go to Lollo and learn from him. He’s a great teacher and a great guy!
