Bring your acoustic guitar and come prepared to learn how to create a solo in the alternate tuning ‘Bastard G’ by exploring some new approaches to the styles of John Lee Hooker and R.L. Burnside. Doug MacLeod‘s class will emphasize the importance of the right hand for establishing the groove to support a solo using single notes, double stops, octaves, and simple chord forms. Learning to play in alternate tunings can help you break away from old playing habits, and find some new directions and inspirations. Doug won’t teach licks in this workshops but instead hopes to give you the tools to continue to develop your own musical style long after the workshop is over.
