I'll be teaching a one-week Fingerstyle & Flatpicking Guitar Course at the Haliburton School of Art + Design this summer, the week of July 13-17.
Haliburton School of Art + Design
Course Code: ARTS2539
This course is not suitable for beginners. TAB reading and experience with altered tunings is required.
We'll explore a variety of acoustic guitar techniques including traditional and modern fingerstyle skills such as alternating bass, open tunings, and classical. Time will also be spent on flatpicking (bluegrass, singer/songwriter), and an introduction to slide guitar techniques will be provided for those interested. Some practical theory and harmony will also be included. Instruction suits intermediate and advanced skill levels.
