"If you play guitar around the house, in weekend bands, or for a living, my guess is you have questions about something to do with being a better guitar player than you are currently. My workshop title should give you an indication of my thoughts about it, how we relate our musical likes and desires to the instrument(s) we play. How to become aware of the fretboard and our accomplishments to this point and make the best use of it all. I cover many facets of musical abilities, understandings, fundamentals, practice and performance tips, the importance of melody, right hand exercises and techniques for single and multi-string improvement, Left hand challenges and exercises, chord positions, and scale importance. I adapt the workshop to many accomplishment levels, and while it is a guitar workshop, it is not restricted to guitar. I also welcome and invite flatpicking and fingerstyle players. While some of the workshops I do tend to have a bluegrass music flavor, I welcome any acoustic players. "You are encouraged to bring audio recording devices (sorry, video not allowed) to record the workshop, but I must state that no sharing of the recordings are allowed. Note taking is always allowed and encouraged. I suggest attendees bring any questions to the workshop. *No tablature or notation is provided or used, but discussion of this is likely. "Come on out and let's learn something together." ========= "Theory of Musical Relativity" - Guitar Workshop, Lexington Wednesday, May 12, 7:00pm, in association with the Boston Bluegrass Union and the Music Emporium Location: Music Emporium Street: 165 Massachusetts Avenue City/Town: Lexington, MA View Map $45 BBU members / $50 non-members.
