Contemporary Roots

This special annual weekend seminar will build on the ideas of previous sessions with the focus on new material and practical approaches for developing your music. Space is limited so there will be time for individual instruction as well as group se

ssions and informal solo playing.  Woody will be teaching a wide range of repertoire including the styles and break down the complexities into a  “toolbox” for developing simple chord melody ideas, syncopated picking and understanding the logic of the fret board.  This seminar focuses on understanding what you are playing and developing practical approaches for creating variations within a tune as well as practicing techniques and ways to develop your own sound.  This is a hands on practical workshop. It is designed for guitarists who would like to take their music to the next level and learn  in a very relaxed and supportive environment. Space is definately limited. This retreat sells out quckly so  if you have an questions please get in touch by  email.  Looking forward to another amazing weeken
