Cheap Guitar Tricks

$25 ($24 members) · 90 minutes · Single meeting

Ah yes, the parlor tricks of the guitar-playing world...easily learned, easily mastered, and wonderful for adding personality to your playing. Learn a dozen or more little "gotcha" tricks on your guitar, and then we'll spend a while talking about how and when to use them, and put them in a song context and try them out! We'll talk about the pick slide, natural and artificial harmonics, guitar-as-percussion, minimalism, bends, and all kinds of silly sounds that can "add the eyebrows" to your playing (as Frank Zappa would say).
