Best Guitar Teacher to the Stars

David Pulkingham

Robert Plant, Patty Griffin, Alejandro Escovedo: The common thread is David Pulkingham. He’s become Austin’s favorite guitar teacher – if you can get him. When he’s not on the road, he’s a warm, patient, and inspiring guitar teacher to students of all ages. Flamenco to rock & roll, from the Continental Club to Carnegie Hall, Pulkingham’s what famed producer Tony Visconti calls “the complete guitarist.” Griffin says, “He scares me, he amazes me, he moves me to tears. Doesn’t get better [than Pulkingham] in my book.”
