Presented by Preston Reed
The workshop will take place on Thursday 9th and Friday 10th August. Preston will teach the techniques and thinking behind his approach to percussive acoustic guitar playing and composition.
This is your chance to learn directly from the man who invented the now hugely popular style of playing!
During the four 2-hour interactive sessions over the two days he will cover:
- percussive sounds and techniques
- making a percussive groove
- incorporating and moving between techniques and styles
- developing a composition
(Digital tablature for the music covered will be available)
Preston will also cover pick-up systems and gear for percussive playing, live performing and repertoire, the process of making a solo acoustic guitar album, hand-injury avoidance, traveling with guitars, the music business, copyrighting your music, and building a career as a guitarist.
You will be encouraged to create your own composition over the course of the workshop and perform it for the class at the end.
All ages and skill levels are welcome, however some guitar experience is recommended.
