Dustin Furlow - "Tone, Timber, and Ergonomics"
Friday, October 13, 2:00pm–3:00pm
The Bear Cantina, 295A Tinker Street, Woodstock, NY   See Map

-This workshop will be an insightful offering for attendees that will be less music theory/playing related and more about tips for sounding your best depending on your style, guitar choice and preferred genre. -We will go over nail care, posture, observed sonic behaviors of notable tonewoods that are based on science and not just subjectivity, and of course - string choice. -Dustin has played over 100 handmade guitars during his tenure at Cedar Rock Studio Guitar Gallery to include many by today's top luthiers and he has also owned many of these makers' guitars over the years. -Dustin will be sharing experiences and outlooks on why certain guitars work well for certain genres from a frequency and responsiveness standpoint and of course what techniques will help people play more ergonomically for longer periods of time.
