"I'm truly humbled to have you in my life, Marc. Your wonderful advice, passion for teaching, and extraordinary talent as a guitarist has been a guiding light for me from my first day back into this realm three years ago. I remember certain things you told me that have resonated: 1) 'it took me four years to gain proficiency.' 2) 'even though your guitar may be hard to play now, keep at it, and it will get easier.'"

- Thaddeus G. Jr.
