Phoenix Guitar League – Neil Hogan – Part 1
On November 13, 2018 the Phoenix Guitar League had its first meeting at a Marriott Hotel on the west side of town. Neil was asked by Bart Marshel to be the inaugural presenter with a mixed format of performance, instruction, and interaction with the attendees.
A small group of guitar players convened and a great time was had by all (almost…).
In Part 1 Neil starts off with some personal history, going back to his first guitar lesson as a kid and plays snippets of a few pieces, including, Satin Doll, Bottle Of Wine, Tientos (a piece of his Flamenco past), When I’m 64 and I’m Looking Through You. The last are samples from his CD A Beatles Collection.
Great to meet Neil and Bart. A good time WAS had by all but the time went by so quickly. Interesting to hear about Neil’s influences and of course very entertaining to hear him play. Very personable and full of insights. Makes him a great teacher! Glad I went.
