"Writing Songs With Guitar"
For a singer or a songwriter, the guitar can do more than accompany your voice and fill in the chords-it can be a great writing partner, sparking song ideas and helping to guide you throughout the process. In this workshop Jeffrey Pepper Rodgers, founding editor of Acoustic Guitar magazine, grand prize winner of the John Lennon Songwriting Contest, and author of The Complete Singer-Songwriter, shares tips and techniques for using the guitar in songwriting. Learn how to turn riffs and grooves into songs, steal ideas (legally!) from other songs, develop chord progressions and melodies, build contrast between sections of a song, and much more. All levels welcome, beginners to advanced. http://jeffreypepperrodgers.com/workshops/
