I'll be holding an online guitar workshop in November; there will be four 2-hour sessions (8 hours of instruction over four weeks). I'll be sharing the elements of guitar playing that have made my lead guitar solos and rhythm a mainstay of Alison Krauss & Union Station for 29 years. Intermediate to advanced.
If you can't make the live sessions, no worries! I'll be adding a bonus lesson the next day, editing the live session down a bit, and then putting it up with password-protection for long-term access for all those who have signed up!
Dates: Nov 12, 19, 27, Dec 3 at 7pm Central Time (Nov 26 is Thanksgiving, so that day will be done on Friday, Nov 27).
Topics: Roots and Inflluences - George Shuffler, Larry Sparks, and Clarence White to blues and country players. We'll move on into some of my solos with Alison throughout the course, but at the front end we'll look into some of the players that helped create my style.
The Psychology of Playing Well (this is incredibly important)
Right and Left Hand Technique
Tone - Timing - Taste
How I Learned and Continue to Learn the Neck, and how it has helped create the style of lead and rhythm guitar I play with Alison Krauss & Union Station.

Plus these freebies and more: Downloads of A Light So Fair: Peaceful Guitar Instrumentals; my Hogan's House of Music instrumental record (I took quite a few guitar breaks on it); a pdf of my Traditional Guitar Workbook with my personal tabs of George Shuffler, Larry Sparks, Bill Napier, Don Reno, Clarence White, and Junior Blankenship. These freebies alone are worth about $47.
When signing up, you'll get a download link for Hogan's House of Music. I'll be putting all email addresses into a file, and in the next week or so when I get everything into Dropbox I'll be sending out the Zoom link, passwords I'll use for the videos, and the Dropbox link with the outlines, tabs, and freebies.
