Introduction to Flatpicking - Beppe Gambetta Workshop - 10-20-2018 1pm


Saturday, October 20th at 1PM

We're excited to have friend of the store Beppe Gambetta back here in Lawrence! Tickets available online and in person at the shop, but the number is limited so get to ordering early. If ordering online just print out your emailed receipt as proof of purchase. Details below on this upcoming workshop:

This class will introduce the main characteristic and aesthetic of Flatpicking: the technique developed in the American tradition by exceptional artists like Doc Watson, Norman Blake, Tony Rice and many more.

Guitarists that are not specifically trained in Flatpicking style will find an intriguing potential in the expressions of this traditional technique. The timing, syncopation, tone, groove and music choices that can be learned from old Fiddle Tunes and Carter Family Style melodies are treasures that many artists continue to enjoy today and apply to the music of our modern times.

The journey into the style will touch the main technical aspects: from the picking of the single notes, to strumming, to arpeggios and crosspicking, and all the combinations of them. We will use exercises and tunes and look for the perfect balanced practice, from the traditional material to the more progressive developments, exploring the potential of the style in many directions.
