WHO IS THIS GUY?

Me? Aw shucks. Nice of you to ask. 

My name is Alex Vollmer. I’ve been a rock and roll guitar player for twenty-five years. I’ve done a lot of other things in that time, but I don’t love anything as much as I love rocking out on the guitar.

Over the years I’ve seen friends and other musicians get stuck with their playing. Life gets too busy and nobody has time to explore new things. When your music starts to stagnate, you stop having fun playing the guitar. When you stop having fun with the guitar, you stop playing. When you stop playing, then life just gets a whole lot worse, doesn’t it? So I thought that I could do something about that.

Six String Recess is a mix of lessons, commentary and who-knows-what-else to celebrate all things related to the guitar. I hope to share some of the insights I've gathered over the years as well as the music I enjoy writing and playing.
