Hi, my name is Anthony Stauffer, and teaching blues guitar is my passion. Sixteen years ago, I uploaded a few SRV lessons to YouTube and accidentally started a new career. In 2009, I left my job as a software developer to do this full-time.
I discovered Stevie Ray Vaughan in college, and his playing changed my life. His influence opened the door to many other artists. Studying and learning how to play like my heroes allowed me to express myself in ways that were impossible before.
My mission with Texas Blues Alley is to help you achieve the dream of playing powerful, expressive, and dynamic blues guitar. If you give me a chance, I'll teach you everything I know.
