Wayne Henderson Guitar Workshop

Sunday November 23rd, 4 - 8pm
Unitarian Universalist Church of Silver Spring
$45 Advance/$55 Door

Legendary Appalachian guitar instrumentalist and luthier Wayne Henderson has packed American concert halls on all ve "Masters of the Steel String Guitar" tours, served as a musical ambassador for the State Department, and been honored at the White House with a National Heritage Fellowship. In this workshop designed for intermediate guitarists, Wayne will cover the principles and repertoire of Appalachian flatpick guitar. Students will learn a number of ddle tunes, Carter Family songs, and guitar pieces native to the mountains of southwest Virginia.

Henderson is a gifted teacher who will takes lightning-fast fiddle tunes and breaks them down into phrases that intermediate guitarists can digest. By the end of the workshop students are performing tunes that seemed impossible at the beginning of the class. The workshop will be divided into two 90-minute sessions with an hour to grab some dinner (and give the fingers a chance to recover). Wayne does not use tab, so students are encouraged to bring a cassette recorder. Multi-insttrumentalist Josh Goforth will assist with leading the class. Enrollment is limited to 20 participants, so register early. Call 301-754-3611 to sign up.
