Pushing the boundaries: Modern Fingersyle, Alternate Tunings, Harmony and Percussion
Modern fingerstyle guitar came to be primarily through the genius of players like Leo Kottke, Bruce Cockburn, Joni Mitchell and Michael Hedges. Those pioneers discovered the ways that rhythm, harmony and extending the possibilities of the guitar could create sounds that had never before been heard. We’ll talk about and explore altered tunings (and why altered tunings!), and new techniques for exploring harmonic richness and percussiveness to keep creating some of those new sounds.
