Paul Mowbray's Blues Guitar Study Group and Jam

Mar 6, 2022 from 3:30pm - 5:30pm

Paul coaches guitarists in our monthly Blues Guitar Study Group using classic songs and artists from the 20s to present. Disecting each song to understand how sound, techniques and form of the piece intersect offers a deep-dive into the heart and soul of the music. 

Our class operates at a gentle pace with lots of opportunity to play rhythm and lead along with discussing anything about the music that adds insight into this foundational form of music. This small group is a great way to unearth a deeper understanding of the Blues.

2 hr class $45.00
