"It's great to see a guitar player showing how to play the solos to Dancing Doll", Art Adams

"This is the 4th course I have done from Randy and they never disappoint.Always teaches you the things you want to hear in an easy and accessible way. Tried many other tuition videos but these are the absolute best if you like rockabilly. Randy has an easy manner and is never patronising.", Nigel Grund
"Excellent course for me. When I first heard Scotty Moore's guitar & the early Elvis songs I was 13 years old living on Yokota AFB, Japan and was amazed at the guitar playing. Now I'm finally starting to play the songs in this lesson, Thanks to the instruction from Randy Richter; and now at 77 my guitar playing can amaze myself, and maybe a few at a local Senior Living Facility where I play once a month.", Len Canter

My name is Randy Richter, I was born in 1974 in Rostock, Germany. At age 16 I started to teach myself how to play the guitar. Shortly after I played shows around my hometown and in 1996 I became a full time professional musician. With my band Randy Rich and The Poor Boys we've toured all over Europe and the US and appeared on the biggest festivals in the scene. Due to our excellent skills and our love to the authentic sound of the 1950s I had the chance to play and record with many of the original rockabilly legends like Janis Martin, Glenn Honeycutt, Eddie Bond and Glen Glenn.
In 2005 I started to teach guitar to some local students. Because of the fun I was having doing that I extended this part of my job even further and now I'm also teaching people online via Skype. With my Rockabilly Guitar Video Lessons I have the chance to share my knowledge and my passion for the music of the 1950s to thankful students everywhere in the world.
