Grab the Goodness Now!
Ahhhh seeing you work with former students makes my heart soooo happy!! Thanks for all you do, Mr. Perry!! ❤️❤️
I heard you last night on "Song of the Mountain" and enjoyed listening to your set very much! I'm a grasser, but I love blues as well. I enjoyed listening to your students' videos and was very impressed. I'm a retired elementary teacher and love to see you inspire your students by featuring their talents on the videos! I hope to hear your group live sometime. My husband and I like to visit the Country Store up there and jam on the street. Do you have a music store as well? God bless and keep on making great music and inspiring our young folks!
hey scott ,just thought i would let you know everything turned out ok with my tests and i would like to thankyou for your guidence in my guitar playing. with the 1 and 2 note concept forced me to pay attention to the background music and that was what i was missing ,. i would appreciate having another lesson with you to share this with you and to thankyou in person for your help! thanx paul
Hi Scott--Although I'm not tied much to your stoic page I am excited to be able to meet you at the Martin Taylor guitar camp this coming August. I'm going as a treat to myself. You will be able to recognize me as probably the only guy with a 7/8th size custom-made classical guitar with a fret-board a bit too long for the body (I have big hands)--but with quite the sound.
Scott Perry, Who would Think there'd be someone else with that name,LOL!!!
Music warms my soul
I first saw Scott perform over a decade ago and have seen him numerous times since. Scott was an accomplished musician the first time I saw him, but the one characteristic that Scott possesses that makes him stand out is that he is always getting better and expanding his skill set. He is a far better musician than he was 10 years ago and I imagine he will be a far better musician 10 years from now. This doesn't just happen by accident. It takes work. Watching his growth inspires.

Scott Perry is a vintage blues guitarist & guitar guide devoted to American blues, jazz, h***y tonk and rock & roll. I play vintage acoustic blues, jazz, h***y tonk and rock & roll as a solo act and with the band Jam Sandwich.

I also teach guitar lessons. My wife and I live on a 40 acre farm in Floyd County, VA where we raised our sons, dog, cats, chickens, fruit trees, berry bushes, a vegetable garden and more than a few eyebrows.
