Hi I am an electric guitar teacher in Miami named Dyce Kimura. I am doing a review of the BillM modded Blues Junior. I’ve done a review on this amp before and I got so many emails and questions and comments and I thought I’d do another review with a lot better microphone. So I’m using a sure stereo convention mic. And I’m going from my fender Stevie Ray Vaughan signature strat into blues Junior. And I am also going through an Ibanez tube screamer pedal which is not on at the moment I’ll tell you when I […] Read more
Hi, this is Dyce Kimura. I am a guitar teacher in Miami and on Skype. I am doing an equipment review of this guitar. This is an Epiphone Acoustic guitar. The model number is PR-150 NA. NA stands for natural, so this is a natural acoustic guitar. It costs $159.99 on Amazon.
Epiphone PR-150 Review
I was really, exceptionally impressed with the quality of this guitar while making the Epiphone PR-150 review. A student brought it to me at the teaching studio the other day, and she gave me permission to borrow it to make this equipment review.
This guitar sounds great. […] Read more
North Miami guitar lessons veteran Dyce Kimura here! Today I’m doing a very in-depth video on acoustic guitar maintenance and how to change strings and how to tune them up from scratch and stretch them out – at least the way I like to do them. I’m playing my Martin HD 35 for this video. It’s in tuned and these strings are about a week old. I like to change my strings about once a week. And I know that might be shocking to some of you, but I do play a lot of guitar; usually about 8 hours a […] Read more
Hi, I offer Miami acoustic guitar lessons and my name is Dyce Kimura. Today I’m covering the topic of Thinking out Loud by Ed Sheeran on acoustic guitar finger style; just like he does it.

So I’m going to play it for about a minute with Ed Sheeran with the recording and then I’m going to explain everything to you in terms of the parts and also the specific techniques. If […] Read more
Hey, what’s up friends. This is Dyce Kimura I’m a Miami blues guitar teacher and I’m doing a review of the Analog Man Big-T Tele pickup for the neck. I’m also going to do a review for the Fender N3 bridge pickup. This review is by popular demand. I kept getting emails, every couple of weeks I get another email, because a while ago I did a review of this pickup.

Basic guitar playing is fun and relatively easy to learn, but what if you want to become a better guitarist? While plucking a few notes here and there or strumming certain chords allow you to play simple songs and read tabs, you’ll need to take further steps to advance in the practice. When looking for Fort Lauderdale guitar lessons, make sure you find an instructor who starts with the basics. Your instructor should also help you proceed with finer and more intricate details, like learning the notes on your guitar’s fretboard.

If you are a beginning guitarist and still hearing odd sounds when you play, the problem is most likely not the notes that you are playing—but rather, the problem comes from the notes that you AREN’T playing. Unwanted string noise is a problem that affects all beginners at some time or another—and is always the result of improper technique. However, even if you are an accomplished guitarist, according to professional guitarist Dyce Kimura who provides Fort Lauderdale guitar lessons, developing the proper muting technique will take your playing to the next level.

If you love to sing, it’s not a question of if you will strain your voice—but WHEN you will strain it. So before you feel your voice faltering, it would be a good idea to stock up on a few items (if you don’t already have them), according to Dyce Kimura, a well-regarded guitarist and singer who provides Fort Lauderdale singing lessons. Dyce recommends that you get a few bottles of your favorite bottled water, any kind of soothing tea, salt, and a few whole lemons. You’ll probably have most of these items in your kitchen already; but making sure […] Read more
