Roots of Blues Guitar with Eli Cook
January 19, 2019 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm$30
In this workshop we will discuss key elements of Blues based guitar playing. This entails crucial rhythmic and melodic concepts, and touches on both acoustic and electric styles, as well as various finger and thumb picking techniques and provides an overview of what makes good “Blues Guitar”. Classic turnarounds, walking patterns, tricks for transitioning between chords and signature riffs and licks will all be included and discussed from both a player’s technical standpoint and from a historical perspective. Using examples from players such as Robert Johnson, Son House, Albert King and Stevie Ray Vaughan, this class will have something for anyone that wants to play Blues guitar or that just enjoys the music and wants to learn more about it.
Eli Cook will perform in concert later that evening from 8:00 – 10:00 PM at The Front Porch. Attendees of the Roots and Blues Guitar Workshop will be able to attend the concert for free. Tickets and more information HERE.
