You are invited to attend an exclusive in-person workshop with AG Live! Hosted by Acoustic Guitar magazine in our Point Richmond, California headquarters, studio, touring and local artist instructors will be in to teach topic-based workshops for small groups.
Has your fingerpicking groove developed into a rut? As fingerpicking guitar is often taught via specific songs, the advancing player might begin wondering how to embellish the tunes in his or her repertoire, or maybe even how to improvise freely, instead of always playing by rote. This workshop is intended to give you some new ways to practice and to set your own path as a fingerstyle player. Jamie Stillway discusses ways to develop thumb/finger independence via scales and harmonized string pairs, incorporating new right hand techniques such as banjo rolls, and but not least, ways to develop a meaningful relationship with your metronome.
- Workshop, 3-5 pm on October 19, 2019
