It will complement the Campfire Guitar Bootcamp 101 well in that there will only be 1 meeting/month and rather than learning a pile of songs and riding the wave in a big group weekly. There will only be a handful of songs, small groups and proper arrangements. Experiment with songwriting and learn the ins and outs of making arrangements.

Americana FingerStyle Guitar w/ Tim Williams

The term “Americana” covers a broad range of contemporary genres. The course will touch on Blues, Rockabilly, Travis Picking, Hawaiaan Slack Key, Classic Singer-Songwriter accompaniment styles, and much more.  Students need to be competent with first position chords and open to learning new variations, and willing to put in the time to “divorce” the picking thumb from the fingers (sometimes referred to as thumb independence). A sense of fun and musical adventure is also always an asset.
