Don't miss this opportunity to learn the good stuff from Pat Donohue: virtuosic fingerpicker, perennially-popular teacher and longtime house guitarist with Prairie Home Companion!

 

In this workshop you will learn to enhance and improve your fingerstyle technique from the ground up.

 

From simple 12-bar shuffles to sophisticated arrangements we will look at common chord progressions, chord sequences, and all the little licks and tricks that tie them together into an improvisation or arrangement.

 

Moving on to: turnarounds, intros, left and right hand "moves" and endings - your skills will improve with demonstration and practice. We'll study a few of the masters, with specific nods to Chet Atkins style, as we move toward expanding our fingerstyle vocabulary. You will ultimately find it possible to play many styles of music more spontaneously after practicing these techniques!

 

Students should be of intermediate to advanced level. Bring your guitar, recording device, and your enthusiasm!
