A Calgary Folk Fest and National Music Centre Bootcamp Session
Terra Lightfoot - Guitar Town, Population: You.
Tue · July 25, 2017 - Thu · July 27, 2017
Daily schedule: 10am - 1pm
Lightfoot’s class will teach the construction of a guitar solo, utilizing open tunings, fingerpicking and playing in a band setting. Students will learn about different genres of music featuring the guitar and will write their own musical piece in small groups and perform for the class.
The focus will be balanced between technique and performance. Lightfoot will play musical examples to gain insight into technique and performance.
Class level/requirements: You must have experience with basic guitar chords and some knowledge of open chords plus rhythm and timing and preferably have an interest in songwriting or singing…but this is not a must.
Bring: An electric guitar and amplifier or an acoustic and a capo (she’ll bring some too), note books or song books. Also bring 3 favourites: a song that features fingerpicking, guitar solo and current song...and have a digital copy of these to bring.http://calgaryfolkfest.ticketfly.com/event/1488149/
