Advance your acoustic slide guitar and fingerstyle technique by learning songs, licks and styles of traditional and contemporary Americana, Blues and Roots artists. Students will learn both solo fingerstyle and slide songs, but will also learn how to add color while accompanying another instrumentalist. Attention will be given to building skills in improvisation, soloing and more advanced techniques such as alternating thumb / Piedmont Picking. Students will play songs in standard, open G and open D tunings. Artists covered will vary by session.
