Dive into a four-day exploration of guitar techniques, as seven virtuoso teachers lead students in studies of flamenco, Hawaiian slack key, bluegrass flat pick, classical, jazz, blues and rock. Each day will have two 90-minute sessions, each focusing on one genre and one jam session to explore what you learned with your fellow participants. Beginning and Intermediate tracks are available, as well as an All Access Pass, which allows participants to choose classes from either track each day. Also included for all participants is a special class on basic instrument maintenance and repairs, as well as a full faculty panel discussion.
