Guitar, Telecasters and Music
DATE: JUNE 24, 2017 TIME: 1:30 PM
Billboard Magazine has called Jim Campilongo “an American treasure” while The New Yorker raved that “few guitarists capture the nuances as well as Campilongo does.” In this masterclass, renowned Tele-master Campilongo will delve into key concepts and techniques that have shaped his unique playing and compositional style and that he hopes ““will inspire and help you become a more versatile, more expressive guitarist”. Topics include: Hybrid Picking, Behind the Nut Bending, Using the Tuning Pegs, Steel Guitar Chords, Using Harmonics, Tone and Volume Swells, Bending The Neck, Improvisational Approach and Sonic Quality. Expanding on ideas and influences ranging from Chet and Buchanan to Hendrix and McLaughlin, Campilongo’s Masterclass is a must for anyone interested in pushing the boundaries of their musical skills in the country/blues/jazz melting pot and beyond.
Accompanying Jim will be fellow NYC guitarist Luca Benedetti: co-producer of Jim's latest release "Last Night, This Morning" and former Vancouver resident/co-founder of local hard hitting Country-Swing band, Speeding West.
Jim & Luca will also be performing at the 2017 TD Vancouver Jazz Festival with Jim Campilongo & The Brooklynites
