• The Blues is When a Guitar Sings – Int./Adv.

  • with Pete Kennedy

In his career as an accompanist to singers, Pete Kennedy has learned and applied the lessons of tasteful backup and soloing across a range of genres. Blues guitar is a unique style in which the lead guitar functions as a duet with the vocal line. In this workshop Pete will emphasize vocal style phrasing and apply it to intros, fills, solos and turnarounds. Everything will be done on acoustic guitar, in standard, open D, open G and open Dminor tuning. Pete will also give examples of the differences in touch and taste that identify the great Blues players…there’s an old saying that you can identify the greats by “just one note.” We will try to find that note in ourselves!
