"Keep Your Lamps Trimmed and Burning: Gospel-Blues Styles of The Rev. Gary Davis"
This is a rare workshop opportunity with Larry Campbell, whose constant touring and recording schedules usually preclude time for teaching. In this class Larry will explore and expand on the essence of The Rev. Gary Davis's unique approach to the guitar. He will detail the licks and runs, movable chord positions, bass lines, harmonies and complex fingerpicking patterns that have made the Reverend's songs the touchstones of the blues and folk-gospel world. Larry will teach you his own masterful arrangement of the classic "Keep Your Lamps Trimmed and Burning." You'll be immersed in a variety of guitar skills, and will be able to use what you've learned when creating you own arrangements for other songs in this genre.
Level: Intermediate to advanced, beginners welcome to come away with ideas and inspiration!
