A combined guitar and violin focused workshop with Mitchell and Vincent which will look at instrumental playing ideas (including making music with other people) alongside more detailed techniques and thoughts on guitar and violin playing.
The violin side will focus on style and tone when playing traditional music. The guitar side will focus on adding variety to accompaniments (particularly how simple chord shapes can open up the fret-board) and tune playing using traditional music as the base. Combining both instruments into one workshop means everyone can learn from each other and also provides an opportunity to see how some of the ideas talked about can work in practice.
Both Graham and David are trained luthiers as well as musicians so there will be some talk about how the instruments are made as well as played through the workshop.
Open to all to come along, but for joining in with the playing side, it is recommended that you have a basic knowledge of your instrument and an average ability e.g. simple open chord shapes knowledge and able to play a tune.
Please specify in the comments section when booking which instrument you are bringing with you. Alternatively, once you have booked, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with which instrument you are bringing.
