The Workshops are….

  • DADGAD tuning
  • Efficiency in Technique
  • Basic Boom-Chick Fingerstyle Guitar
  • The Elements of Style. A deconstruction of techniques and how to find your own 'voice'

FEEL FREE TO BRING YOUR GUITAR!!! All the workshops are interactive so you can join in and play if you wish or just take notes and observe.
Building on the success of last year, we had local music stores and independent luthiers/repair shops/dealers/marketers come out and show their stuff at the GUITAR SUMMIT EXPO.
If you were there last year you will recall we basically took over the WHOLE TWO FLOORS of the Button factory facility for the full day. We had just under 70 players in attendance for a full slate of workshops, performances, expo and networking and we hope to see more out this year.
