About David Butler
David Butler is the Cofounder of ArtistWorks, and a lifelong acoustic guitarist. He grew up listening to and playing the guitar-centric music of the 60’s, surrounded by the many music influences of his hometown Memphis Tennessee. Especially drawn to the sound of the acoustic guitar, he strived to master and teach its many styles and techniques including flat pick and finger style (“Travis”) picking. Though his university studies centered on computer engineering, his love of music and guitar inspired a parallel and continuing interest in music education.
His multi-faceted technology career included being one of the original engineers at AOL. After over a decade at AOL, he left to focus his energy on finding better ways for people to learn to play musical instruments, essentially combining the social elements of AOL with music instruction. The result is Video Exchange® learning, an industry-unique approach to online music instruction only available at ArtistWorks. David has been awarded three US patents on Video Exchange learning.
David shares his lifetime of acoustic guitar knowledge in the new online Beginner’s Guide to Acoustic Guitar. His goal is to provide comprehensive, step by step, deep instruction that fills in gaps that often cause first time players to get frustrated. Normally behind the camera at ArtistWorks, he now steps to the other side to teach all the adult beginners who wish to play and enjoy the acoustic guitar.
