Electric Blues Guitar and Band Performance Skills

 with Eddie Martin

11-17 June 2017

Immerse yourself in the blues on our electric Blues guitar Workshop

There is no better way to push your playing to the next level than to spend the week learning and playing the electric guitar with a true blues musician. Eddie Martin has been described as ” the most remarkable blues man of his generation” by Blues in Britain and we are delighted that he will again be running our very popular electric blues guitar workshop.

He has spent most of his life in studying and contributing to the blues legacy and is in great demand not just as a performer but as an accomplished blues guitar teacher.

This course combines Electric Blues Guitar skills training – comprising sessions on the licks and set-up secrets of the Blues greats (from T Bone Walker through to the 3 Kings), tone,  slide guitar, rhythm and improvisation – with Band skills workshops on Song-writing, Timing, Arranging a song, Dynamics, Set Construction, and further options such as Blues Harmonica Basics and Singing coaching. Participants rehearse and develop repertoire in various small group and duo formats working towards a concert performance on the Friday evening to a small invited audience.
