Greetings Wayne here! I sure hope everyone is staying inside, brushing the dust off their ukuleles and guitars and getting busy on them while doing your part to say inside and stay safe and help stop the spread of COVID19 virus. Unfortunately all UKEOUT jam sessions, ukulele open mic nights, and the Monthly Green Parrott Ukulele Orchestra Meeting Night is canceled APRIL 2020 and until notice. Pleased check back.
In order to pass the quarantine “state-of-settle-in” time easier and maybe even with some benefits and true life satisfaction and overall happiness increase, i’m pulling out the old guitars and musical instruments and taking advantage of the time instead of sitting around crying about being locked in.
I’ve got live 1-on-1 SKYPE ZOOM and FACETIME lesson spots open 30 minute or 1 hour. Now is abetter time than ever to give it a try or pick up where you left off – weather it was right before quarantine or not since you where in college – time to get back to it – its the perfect time .
I teach any size Ukulele, banjolele, Uke Bass, acoustic electric or nylon string guitar, Bass guitar, or Cigar Box Guitar or any other stringed home made guitar type instrument. I specialize in slide guitar in regular standard tuning listen to and love everything from Abba to BBKing, Hank Williams to ZZTop, Metallica to SRV and all between.

Hi it’s Wayne Sorbelli here from Island Guitar music store down here in Key West Florida. So far so good in the keys. No corona virus cases yet as of the time I post this that we know about. We are closed to any walk-in business. We are taking phone orders in which you can pay over the phone then i can walk the musical gear and supplies out the front door to your car or bike. This system had served us very well the last few days as we’ve been able to place instruments in the hands of many smart people and their children.
In the months coming we will all be stuck inside. It’ll be a better sentencing if we have an instrument in our hands and at our disposal and are signed up for some 1-one-1 FaceTime, Skype or Zoom lessons with me, or one of our teachers.
Call 305-414-8056 pls leave a voice message if we can’t answer it means we are probably giving a lesson and will return call to you ASAP as we may be teaching.

Wayne Sorbelli here at my Island Guitar Key West Music Lesson & Video Studio. I’m getting ready and running through rough drafts of Led Zeppelin’s EPIC Moby Dick for a lesson request a student requested of me (and pre-paid thank you very VERY much)
I’m doing the main riff using a pick and no slide. I do incorporate the glass picky slide during the drum solo part where normally there is no guitar – making it more like an episode of Whole Lotta Love’s orgasmic middle section and interlude – however I was picturing fishing and hooking on to a Moby Dick type whale where through my playing I was trying to relay my feelings of battling the big one – relating it to my family’s battles and struggles with my little joys blood cancer at the moment. We are fighting things of giant proportions and we love fishing. – so my song about fishing is about catching Moby Dick !! It’s all tensions and release. It’s all the blues in my playing – no matter how rock I try to get lol
I pulled out my old Gibson USA Les Paul 1994 Custom guitar just to get reacquainted lol
I’m playing through a solid state Roland Micro Cube on the Brit Combo amp setting with very little delay on for when I was picking – then cut the delay back to zero but kept the gain on ten for the middle slide trippy part.
Any questions feel free to contact me. Most of the amps and gear I use for videos are for sale. Jsyk.
