Adding Spice To Your Mix

Level 2/3

Toby Walker’s approach to teaching is simple: show folks how to play a song, and then show them how to spice it up with all kinds of exciting licks, runs, chord variations, and assorted tricks to the song to really make it ‘pop.’ 

In this class not only will you add some cool songs to your repertoire, but the spices you mix in can be applied to songs that you already play. Overall, you’ll be really ‘cooking’ in a whole new way.  Toby will provide instructional videos, that students can stream and download, at the close of the weekend.

About Toby Walker

Little Toby Walker brings forth a combination of raw southern-delta and North-Carolina-Piedmont-inspired blues, as diversely influenced by 1960’s rock-and-roll as by traditional southern blues and mountain music. Walker has the uncanny ability to play Travis style bass lines and sizzling lead guitar licks simultaneously, giving the listener the impression that they are hearing two guitars. Walker’s wealth of knowledge is also derived from travels to the deep south for study with many old time blues musicians. Blues Revue calls his guitar playing inspired. “His fingerpicking is as intricate as any linen finery… A pinch of Piedmont, a dash of Delta, a solid Chicago undercurrent minus the amplification but not the electricity – A brilliant, remarkable guitarist who has mastered everyone from Blind Blake to Buddy Guy. Bob Margolin says “I am stunned and in awe of Toby Walker’s pickin’! Not only does he master diverse blues styles, but plays them with both flash and depth.” Winning the prestigious 2002 International Blues Challenge Award, Little Toby Walker is now endorsed by Martin Guitars, National Reso-phonic Guitars and John Pearse Strings
