Electric Blues: Improv Masterclass

Level 2/3

Super-charge your soloing and become a better all-round player. In this class we’ll spend a lot of time jamming together on blues-based themes and adding new tricks and techniques along the way. With 40+ years of professional playing and teaching experience, I have developed methods of improving musical flow and expanding fretboard knowledge without getting bogged down in mountains of theory. This workshop is perfect for players with a basic to intermediate understanding of blues/rock guitar. We’ll cover standard blues and rock feels to funky grooves and throw in a few jazzy twists. It is my aim to help you unlock the fretboard and take your playing to new heights.

Knowledge of basic music theory helpful but not essential. Bring a small amplifier and your favourite axe.

About Geoff Achison

Aussie blues/roots guitarist and songwriter Geoff Achison is an internationally recognised artist who has enjoyed a successful independent music career for over three decades. His first professional engagement was being hired as lead guitarist for Aussie blues veteran Dutch Tilders. Geoff quickly learnt that he needed to expertly back up his charismatic bandleader and create spontaneous, crowd-pleasing guitar solos at a moment’s notice. After several years on the road with the Dutchman, he went on to write, record and tour with his own band, The Souldiggers, as well as mastering the art of solo acoustic guitar. His global travels have included countless tours of the USA, UK and Europe performing with local musicians in each region. Along the way he has opened shows for and jammed onstage with Hot Tuna, The Allman Brothers Band, Delbert McClinton, The Wood Brothers and many more. His collaborations with blues, rock, jazz and classical music artists have contributed greatly to Geoff’s broad musical experience.
