Reference point needed from Americans.
I have been reading a book about the late Randy Rhoads a guitarist from the 70's and eary 80's. Anyway, it states that he charged $8 for a 30 minute guitar lesson, this was prior to him being well known so his status is irrelevant to price.
It made me think that was quite high as I know American's even now don't get paid that much let alone in the mid to late 70's.
I have only been able to look up minimum wage rates for the time but of course not everyone is on minimum pay. So I was wondering if anyone could give me an idea of a decent hourly pay rate for the time?
