This workshop is about Dufour's perspective and approach to composition, arrangements, techniques and working with open tunings. Students, bring your guitars for this master class and workshop. The technical side will be about basic and advanced techniques, to be able to play modern untraditional fingerstyle. The most important aspect for Dufour is to help players to develop their own writing skills by explaining his own way of composing songs on the acoustic guitar, breaking them down and analyzing them. The goal is to give tools to the students to improve their writing techniques, using the technique as a support to the musical ideas. Discussions about creativity, tone, live sound and recording, and choosing the right guitar to fit your playing style will be also on the menu. Questions and discussions are more than welcome!
The class is for intermediate to advanced players, but everyone is welcome and can benefit from the course.
