Randy Jackson lives in Morgantown, WV. He's been playing guitar off and on for more than forty years, and studying it for the last fifteen. The studying started when he began taking jazz-blues lessons from an excellent Columbus, Ohio guitar teacher named Buzz Chewning.
Buzz started out the first session by asking him to play a C major scale. No problema! Then he asked him to play it somewhere else on the neck, which he did with a slight hesitation and a bit more delay. Then he asked him to play an A major scale anywhere, then starting at another position, and then another. It took longer to locate the A roots, and when he continued on to other scales, quickly began feeling handicapped, embarrassed actually, by having to think for so long about where the notes were.
