David Grissom's Wide Open Guitar Master Class!
The course will cover my approach to soloing and rhythm playing, tips on how to break out of the playing ruts we all get into, and how to use and select your gear to get the tone you want.
We’ll go over my approaches to blues, rock, and Americana, focusing on the techniques and sounds that define my style.
We’ll study the styles of the 3 Alberts…..King, Collins, and Lee, taking a look at the key elements of their styles. I’ll show you how I’ve incorporated their influences into my playing focusing on vibrato, tone, and string bending techniques and tips. I’ll discuss my approach to scales and improvising, and we’ll take an in depth look at how I do pedal steel bends in all styles of music.
I’ll explain my approach to rhythm playing: how to get a bigger and more in tune sound, and how to break out of the barre chords that we all start out with. I’ll show you how to use capos and baritone guitars to open up the sounds you use and inspire your songwriting.
I’ll share my stories of “how I got the gig” and discuss the skill sets required for touring and studio work. I’ll bring my rig to show you how I use my gear in the studio, and there will be lots of question and answer throughout. This will be an all day workshop with a break for lunch and the cost is $260. Class size will be limited. Reserve your spot now
