Stop dreaming and start playing guitar right away! Learn to Play Guitar in a Day!®, as seen on PBS, is a unique, award-winning one-day workshop for busy adults and aspiring musicians of all ages who would like to play guitar but may not have time for weekly lessons. This is the quickest and easiest way to get far more than just a start: during this fun-filled day you’ll learn basic chords, simple strumming and picking patterns, play familiar songs, learn tuning techniques, guitar care, basic music theory, music resources, tablature, performance skills and more. In no time at all you’ll be playing guitar!
This five-hour class would normally cost over $100 to attend. Thanks to a generous grant from the Bluestein Family Foundation, being administered by the Woodstock Byrdcliffe Guild, the Woodstock Invitational Luthiers Showcase is able to present this class for FREE! There is no cost to attend, no admission charge or other fees. Please bring an acoustic guitar if you have one. No guitar, no problem: we’ll have loaners available, courtesy of Guitar Center, Albany, NY, and other lenders. There will be a half-hour lunch break; you may bring your own, or there are numerous restaurants, snacks and lunch options just steps away.
