Guitar Week

The Swannanoa Gathering Guitar Week is canceled, so…

I have created a series of videos to cover what would have been my class on the music of Mississippi John Hurt.

These are freely available via this page for July 26th through August 2nd, what would have been our Guitar Week 2020 and will be searchable on YouTube through August 2nd.  (* The videos will remain available through mid-September; after that, they’ll be available in perpetuity at patreon.com/scottainslie.)

Please DO share the the lessons.

Looking for a sustainable way to keep this work available to as wide a variety of people as possible, we’ve chosen to keep Patreon tithes low and grant all tiers access to this material.
