The Woodlands Guitar Lessons

Guitar Lessons by Rusty Cooley. Acoustic and electric 6,7 and 8 string. Ages 7 and up all levels Skype as well. It doesn't matter if you are a beginner aspiring shredder or just want to play for fun, I can help you reach any goal you desire.

All lessons are based on each student’s individual needs. I like to teach what I call musicianship; musicianship consists of music theory and technique. Theory teaches you the understanding of how chords, scales, melody and harmony work and technique gives you the physical ability to take the music in your creative mind to your instrument. You could be a musical genius but if you don’t have the physical ability to unlock it no one will ever know. Beginning guitar lessons is perfect for guitarists as well as players who want to enhance their knowledge. Includes theory, left hand techniques, improvising with pentatonic scales, learning techniques bending, vibrato, hammer ons and pull offs. Power chords, open position chords and rhythm guitar. Includes licks in the style of the greats and more. The most thorough course for beginning guitarists. Intermediate This level is great for the guitarist who already knows their basics and is ready to take the next step. Everything from harmonization to triads, advanced chord voicing’s and improvising with the modes. Learning about intervals and how to apply rhythm guitar and advancing techniques like tapping string skipping and sweep picking. This class starts with a quick review of the basics. Advanced to Pro This class includes everything from major scales, harmonic minor, melodic minor advanced pentatonics extended chords and arpeggios advanced rhythm guitar and time signatures phrasing how to build solos. Also includes technique –expanding exercises for legato, alternate picking, sweep picking, hybrid picking, string skipping, tapping with multiple fingers and advanced scales such as diminished and whole tone. Everything is taught with theoretical and improvisational applications. I would also like to make it known that I’m not just a metal/shred teacher I teach guitar in general electric and acoustic, and music theory to anyone. I Teach ages 6 and up and just about any style. I can instruct you in many different ways like guitar coach, mentor, and personal trainer as well as a motivator that can help you attain your musical goals through proper practice techniques and schedules that will help you maximize your time and energy. I can help you with your equipment live and studio setups and can advise you on your career, how to form a band online presence; getting gigs endorsements and the music business in general.

Ormsby Guitars


PERTH, WESTERN AUSTRALIA (January 24, 2019) – Ormsby Guitars, a pioneer in multiscale electric guitars, welcomes guitar virtuoso Rusty Cooley to its family of artists.

Cooley is always pushing the boundaries of what the guitar can do, and he needs an instrument that can keep up with his creativity and technique. “A good friend of mine turned me on to Ormsby guitars and I was immediately intrigued,” Cooley says. “The guitar played great and had a very cutting-edge and innovative look. After speaking with Perry I knew this was the right move for me. Finally a guitar builder with the vision to go where no-one else has ever been, and the balls to do it!”

“Rusty and I are on the same wavelength when it comes to pushing the boundaries of guitar design,” luthier Perry Ormsby says. “When we began designing Rusty’s new guitar, we spent hours on Skype discussing everything from upper fret access to headstock shape to the perfect control location, to shared inspirations like Randy Rhoads. This is an instrument that really captures the excitement and passion of both playing and making guitars.”

A Rusty Cooley signature model electric guitar is in the works which not only meets Rusty’s demand for the ultimate in upper fret access; it exceeds it by providing completely unrestricted access all the way up to the 27th fret. This 7-string instrument features 25.5” to 26.2” multiscale, Floyd Rose Lo Pro 7 vibrato, EMG Pickups, partially-scalloped frets, glow-in-the-dark fretboard inlays and a unique Ormsby-designed, angled locking nut.

“I’ve always compared my guitars to high-performance cars like a Lamborghini, but what we’re working with now is clearly alien technology,” Cooley says. “The upper-fret access has to be seen to be believed. As long as I’ve been playing, I’ve always fought against the structural limitations of the instrument. Guitar playing continues to evolve and guitars must evolve along with it. The only limitations you have with playing this guitar are the ones you set on yourself. This guitar will take you as far as you can go.”

You can play Rusty’s prototype at the Ormsby NAMM booth, #2841.
