Get more sounds out your guitar in this 4-week course with Glenn Weiser, who Acoustic Guitar magazine has described as a “master teacher.” Using a broad range of famous songs from the folk, blues, bluegrass, and classic rock repertoires, we will cover several right-hand strumming and picking techniques: down-up strumming patterns, bass note-chord accompaniment both with the fingers or a pick, and fingerpicking skills including folk guitar arpeggios, alternating thumb picking, and the monotonic or drone bass. Left hand skills will include expanding your vocabulary of chords to encompass several types of chords in the most often used guitar keys, how to use slash chords to create step-wise bass harmonies in a chord line, and how to add melodic embellishments. We’ll also learn up the neck chords positions, dropped D tuning, and how to use the Nashville number system to transpose a song into the right key for your singing voice.
Glenn Weiser studied classical guitar in high school with Maestro Paul Battat, and later fingerstyle guitar with ragtime guitarist Eric Schoenberg. He also received instruction on mandolin from John McGann of the Berklee College of Music and pointers on blues harmonica from Jerry Portnoy, formerly of the Muddy Waters Blues Band. Now based in Connecticut, Glenn has taught students of all ages and levels how to play guitar, banjo, mandolin, harmonica, fiddle, ukulele, and electric bass for over 40 years. Acoustic Guitar magazine has called him a “master teacher.” The styles he teaches include folk, bluegrass, blues, Celtic music, old-time string band music, classical guitar, fingerstyle guitar, and classic rock. Glenn is the author of nine books on fingerstyle guitar and six books on harmonica, and has written for Acoustic Guitar and Sing Out! magazines. He has performed at festivals, coffeehouses, and other venues in the Northeast, and has two CDs of fingerstyle guitar music available. Glenn is ranked among harmonica.com’s 100 Top Musicians. He is also the admin of Facebook’s Celtic Guitar Group and the Bluegrass, Country and Old-Time Harmonica group.
Glenn is also available for private lessons in Northampton on all the above-named instruments and styles, with all levels taught. Contact him at 413-455-9215 or at firstname.lastname@example.org Website: www.celticguitarmusic.com
