Matt Schroder Fingerstyle Guitar Technique Workshop:By learning and applying the concept of voice leading to the fretboard, guitarists will be able to play more economic and smarter lines. Learn to musically say what you need to say by using the most important notes. The key technique will improve rhythm playing as well as solo arranging and even guitar solos! Tom Clippert Fingerstyle Guitar Technique Workshop:In this session you will be adding a classic standard to your set list. Together we will use a tune to explore the necessary steps to create the “one person band effect” in a solo performance. Through this journey you will improve your technique, and obtain deeper insight into the art of arranging.
