Elderly Instruments Workshop, Lansing MI

September 23, 2017 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm


These folks understand that this music is not just to be admired, but made.

On Saturday, September 23rd, I’ll be offering a two hour workshop entitled “Robert Johnson: Solo Acoustic Blues Techniques” that will examine the chord forms, guitar reasoning, and stylistic details that allowed Johnson to make his landmark recordings in 1936 and 1937. Dead by the age of 27, Johnson paved the way to rock and roll with a solid solo guitar style that incorporated blues piano conventions and in many ways standardized blues guitar conventions for generations after his death.

Join me for a rollicking couple of hours, guitars in hand, sound recording devices near by…

Reservations recommended as space is limited. Registration will be available on line in the months just prior to the workshop. Check the website listed below.
