Robert Johnson Slide Guitar with Rory Block

This will be a very special workshop given by one of the greatest living exponents of the Robert Johnson guitar style - Rory Block.

Rory defines her workshop style this way - “I do workshops the same way I do my shows- without a set list. It's all about technique and a deeper understanding of the mechanics of the style- while at the same time emphasizing the inspiration, passion and power that the music requires. It's always customized to the students, and I let questions and personal goals set the direction and pace of the class. Bring a good fitting slide, because we will focus on getting great slide sound and finding the comfortable "zen" spot to make it work in the coolest and funkiest way. We also dissect and learn what I call the "musical keys" (informational keys) to the classic Robert Johnson songs- licks and series of notes used again and again in his songs which you will be able to apply to various Johnson songs in open tunings. For mid through advanced players, but people who just want to check out the ideas, hear the stories, and find a starting point for slide, are welcomed!”
