Welcome to the Guitar Picker!


We Believe…

The greatest delight in playing the guitar comes through the understanding of it. We have all seen advertisements where the guitarist appears to be in total ecstasy. This is not achieved until the pupil has felt inwardly that they have earned the right to enjoy it. Get that feeling of accomplishment by making your own choices.

Learn to Play

Rick Richardson employs ideas taken from various methods and has formed a 4 way method which is particularly his own to help his students understand what they must do to gain the most enjoyment from their guitar lessons.

Valuable principles and techniques, like the Descending Digits formula, The C, A, G, E, D formula, Three Notes to a string, Sweep Picking and economy Picking can help your playing when you understand them.
