Woody’s Acoustic Blues Roots & Beyond session will focus on practical approaches for developing fingerstyle technique, understanding the logic of the fretboard, and ways to variations within a tune. These ideas will be illustrated while learning a wide-ranging repertoire of tunes including the arrangements of Reverend Gary Davis, Blind Blake, Lonnie Johnson, Eddie Lang as well as Woody’s original compositions. Woody will break down the complexities and the specific techniques of syncopated picking, damping with both hands, getting a good sound, and basic exercises for exploring the fingerboard. This workshop is designed as a continuation of the ideas in Woody’s previous workshops but open to everyone. It’s a hands on, practical session for people who want to take their picking to the next level, understand what you are playing and learn some great tunes in the process.
