Due to the Coronavirus, all future dates of our workshops are on hold until it's safe to resume normality, so in the meantime...
We have set up a section in The Pod (Tier 3) to keep in touch, post instructional tips and practical theory videos for guitar, upload TABs for download - so we can still share and teach music.
We are doing a version of remote workshops and collectively we are known as the 'Covid Chorus' - see the video below for our rendition of the Foo Fighters tune Times Like These and read the blog HERE and the follow - up our version of The Band's The Weight:
The Covid Chorus
Guitar Workshops in Shropshire
These workshops are suitable for guitarists of all levels - previously we've had beginners through to quite accomplished players - and our aim is to show how you can make the most of your existing skills as well as adding new tricks and tips to your repertoire. The guitar only workshop gives us a chance to go into detail on the technical side of guitar playing, covering fingerpicking, strumming, improvisational ideas and more. We'll be covering tunes in a variety of styles, touching on folk, blues and the lighter end of rock. The aim is to have a fun but informative day working with each player's capabilities, supporting the beginners and stretching the more able. The cost is £70 per person, which includes all course materials and refreshments (tea and biscuits on arrival, a hot meal at lunchtime and refreshments in the afternoon).
Sunday 2nd February 2020 - Guitar Only Workshop
Sunday 15th March 2020 - Guitar Only Workshop (SOLD OUT)
FUTURE DATES UNCONFIRMED DUE TO THE CORONAVIRUS
10.30 am until 5 pm
HOW GOOD DO I NEED TO BE? - A common question is 'what standard of playing do I need to have?' The music is chosen and arranged so as to be played by both relative beginners and the more advanced. If you can play basic open chords - G, C, E minor etc - and can strum or pick a few simple patterns you'll be fine. If you can do more, we can push you further! You don't need to read music, though a basic understanding of chord diagrams and TAB will help you to get the most from the day.
