Robben Ford Livestream Clinic: Breaking Out of the Pentatonic Box

“Most self taught guitarists and especially those who have concentrated on blues and basic rock playing eventually find themselves limited to what many refer to as the "Pentatonic Box”. The first part of my clinic will address ways to break out of old pentatonic habits and open you and your guitar up to further musical possibilities. I will discuss chords and scales as well as a way to see the fretboard in an expanded way. Then I will take questions from participants on any subject they wish to discuss, be it playing or even questions regarding my musical life and experiences.” - Robben Ford

Join us on Zoom to experience this legendary artist and music educator. Robben is one of the premier electric guitarists playing today, particularly for his blues playing, but he has made significant contributions in many musical contexts including folk, jazz, rock, and more. A five-time Grammy nominee, he has played with musicians as diverse as Joni Mitchell, Jimmy Witherspoon, Miles Davis, George Harrison, Phil Lesh, Bonnie Raitt, Michael McDonald, Bob Dylan, John Mayall, Greg Allman, John Scofield, Susan Tedeschi, Keb Mo, Larry Carlton, Mavis Staples, Brad Paisley, and many others.
