Old Town School of Folk Music: Robert Johnson Guitar Workshop
September 20, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 8:15 pm$25.00
I’ll be presenting a 75 minute, hands on guitars workshop on the music and techniques of Delta blues legend Robert Johnson at the august Old Town School Of Folk Music in Chicago on Wednesday evening at 7:00 p.m., September 20th.
This class will look at the strategies, chord forms in standard tuning, and slide techniques critical to playing Johnson’s style of Delta blues, which helped define acoustic Delta/guitar blues for much of the 20th Century.
My workshop will be followed directly by a workshop by Lydia Martin on Robert Johnson for the 5-string banjo! Lydia and I will present contrasting versions of Johnson’s music in between the workshops, hers starts at 8:30. Some come early or plan to stay late.
