Elevate your guitar playing.

Welcome to HighCountryGuitar.com!

Note (Sept. 19, 2023)
HCG is going through a bit of a facelift

and we have hit a couple of snags along the way.
Free lessons are currently not available,
but please enjoy the backing tracks

and look for my lessons on YouTube
while I get this ironed out.

HCG has been owned and operated for more than 20 years by Paul Murin, a Colorado-based guitarist and teacher who toured with Phix and currently plays with DeadPhishOrchestra (or I did, at least, until COVID-19 caused all of our gigs to get cancelled). I seem to specialize in the music of the Grateful Dead and Phish, but have an extensive background in a wide variety of styles.

In 2020, the site was fully redesigned for better navigation and easier updating on my end. Here in 2021, I have begun adding more content and plan to update some of the older content to reflect some of the ways in which my teaching has evolved in the last few years.

Feel free to contact me if you see something amiss, if you have questions, or if you’d like to set up a private lesson.

There are over  200 pages of content here…get after it!
