Playing Styles and Interests
David Hodge, who extols the virtues of playing multiple instruments, practices what he teaches. Since bringing home his Tahitian eight-string ukulele, heâ€™s been providing backup to numerous Berkshire County, Massachusetts, singer-songwriters. But teaching music is still his first love; in addition to his private students, he also teaches group guitar lessons for the Berkshire Community College. And guitar students of all ages and levels from more than 168 countries read his lessons at Guitar Noise. He has published The Complete Idiot's Guide to Songwriting and The Complete Idiotâ€™s Guide to Playing Bass Guitar (Alpha Books).
