Woody’s Workshop: Expanding Your Playing

Level 3/4

“Woody’s workshop” focuses on developing basic fingerstyle techniques and chord vocabulary through a variety of tunes from country blues, ragtime and jazz standards to  Woody’s originals. The goal of the class is to gain a pallet of musical tools including creating chord melodies, syncopated picking, understanding form and progressions, applying practical theory, how to create variations (improvising approaches) and ways to develop a good sound.  The class focuses on understanding what you are playing and how to apply the ideas to various musical styles. Although Woody’s workshop is a follow-up for alumni, it is also a great entry to new students who are comfortable with the basics and would like to take their playing to the next level. It is expected that students are solid level 3 fingerstyle players.
