Andy McKee is mainly a self-taught guitarist. He never studied music at a formal level (e.g. University), but has had a few electric guitar lessons early on. Through those lessons and self-study, he picked up knowledge about chord construction and scales and modes.

He is most famous the YouTube video of him playing his song “Drifting” live. It has garnered over 32,000,000 views worldwide. URL: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ddn4MGaS3N4
