Hi folks. I'm a new member just introducing myself. I've been playing for a long time but am getting into expanding my playing with a great player and teacher in Chicago named Neal Alger.

I'm excitedly looking forward to picking up ideas here as well.

Hi Brian. I happen to have just started taking lessons with Neal Alger a couple of weeks ago, going for my second lesson this Wednesday. I've known Neal for a while now (usually see him perform live with Steve Hashimoto at Simon's or Andy's in Andersonville) and have always admired his playing, especialy his incredibly tasteful chordal work, so I'm really excited to be gaining some perspective on his approach.

Regards,

Paul

Hey Brian and Paul,

I also met Neal at the Green Mill. He is an incredible guitar player and brought new colors and approaches to jazz guitar, in my opinion.

I hope you will benefit from his teaching!

Regards,

Felix
