Adam & Happy Traum - Learning to Play Well with Others
Saturday, October 22, 2:00pm–3:00pm
The Pavillion at The Bear Cantina, 295A Tinker Street, Woodstock, NY   See Map

A workshop for beginning and intermediate-level guitarists

The father/son duo of Happy and Adam Traum will present a guide to jamming and accompanying a fellow guitarist on blues, ballads and other song types. Learn how to keep a strong backup rhythm and then improvise compelling lead lines. This will be more of a demonstration than a hands-on guitar lesson, but comments and questions will be welcome.

Recording permitted for private use only.
