"Eclectic Fingerstyle: Flamenco, Latin and World Music Techniques"
Expand your guitar vocabulary by integrating Latin, Flamenco and World Music techniques into your playing. Itamar has consistently pushed the envelope of what a guitar can do, and will share his innovations and approach to playing, and practicing, to widen and perfect your finger-style guitar technique. He will touch on various World Music riffs and techniques and how you can integrate them into your own style of playing. He will cover such important topics as right and left hand coordination while playing Latin rhythms, increasing finger independence, and developing that dramatic Flamenco technique known as the rasgeado, as well as adapting certain techniques from the classical/flamenco world, such as tremolo, arpeggios and thumb work, for steel-string guitar. Itamar will also share insights on how to develop productive practicing that will keep challenging and pushing you, while making practicing fun.
