"In stating the obvious, it is always magic to hear you play and teach." -R.G.


After I attended guitar workshops where Woody was one of the world class teachers, it re-conformed why he is one of the world's best finger-style guitarist and performer, he he a fantastic teacher. His ability to project his teaching, draws you in and personalizes his teaching so it had the effect (on me) that I knew him personally even though we had never met (at that stage)- Chris S.


"Woody - I just wanted to thank you again for the workshop.  You inspired me to try again at the age of 59 after many previous failures, and so far it's going really well. With gratitude." -J.W.


“Woody was extremely gracious and patient. He presents the material in such a clear and simple way. My adrenaline was pumping just knowing I was learning from someone who is not only a great player, but also a direct link to some of the first generation guys." -R.F.


" I really appreciate your patient, easy-going teaching style, especially for those of us who are still new to the music world. I'm looking forward to working on the tunes, checking out some of your additional videos. Thanks again for the inspiration!" -S.S.


“Woody you are a great teacher and historian. I learned about guys I never heard of who are great.." -E.J.


"Hey Woody, I really enjoyed the Mississippi workshop over the past three weeks. The material we covered is such a great foundation for 'the sound,' which is exactly what I wanted going into the workshop. So, I know where I want to go, and now I have the map." -H.H.


“I was blown away by Woody's thoughtful and considerate teaching...I think it's great the way he sits down and gives as much time as a student needs." -H.M.


"Woody is a great player and teacher. A true gentleman." -D.D
