Electric Blues and Rock: Electric Guitar
This workshop will explore the basics of blues and rock guitar and will provide the tools for creating exciting, dynamic lead solos. you will learn the sound and form of electric guitar from its most elementary licks through improvisational blues and rock playing. Whether you are a new electric guitar enthusiast or experienced, this workshop will improve your playing and expand your knowledge of electric guitar. Please Note: G. E.'s classes do range in size from 12-16 students.
Level four. Well that means that you're already a pretty good guitar player. Maybe it's not what you do for a living but you probably could. More importantly I hope it means that you have an open mind and that you don't think you know all there is to know about guitar, music or how to communicate with your instrument. Those are the sort of things I would like to talk about. And we will play, a lot! I'm looking forward to that.Anchor
