Country and Blues Guitar
with Brooks Williams
10-16 September 2017
“There aren’t many people who can play guitar like Brooks Williams and fewer still who can teach like he can” says Acoustic Magazine
“Country & Blues Guitar” explores the songs, rhythms and riffs of Americana music. Rocking back-beats, chiming chords and twangy leads are wrapped around smart songwriting to create a classic sound. Participants will focus on strumming and picking patterns, walking bass lines, and alternate chord shape up the neck of the guitar. We’ll also look at how to play a basic “Americana” guitar lead. All techniques will be taught through new and classic songs, with lyrics, chord diagrams and TAB, so participants will not only develop new techniques but also expand their repertoire. What to bring: capo, extra strings, picks, a slide, a tuner. What to know: E, E7, Em, A, A7, Am, D, Dm, D7, B7, Bm, C, C7, F, G, G7.
