Event Archive - Neil Young Acoustic Guitar Style Workshop: Paul Mowbray

Sat. November 16th 2013 @  Larsen School of Music - 1808 Cook St (All Ages)
10:30am - 11:30am
Neil Young is a flatpicker and a master of pendulum style strumming. He uses a variety of easy to understand syncopations to keep his rhythm accompaniment effective. His chord voicings are easy to achieve but reflect his study of the guitar neck to get just the right sound. He embellishes with hammer ons and pull offs frequently and commonly uses drop D or double dropped D tuning to get open, lush sounds. Studying his acoustic music will provide new ideas and skills to any guitarist, at any level.

This workshop will explore all of these playing techniques while examining some of your favourite Neil Young songs:

Harvest Moon
Don’t Let It Bring You Down
The Old Laughing Lady
Sugar Mountain
Heart of Gold and more

Who is it for?

This workshop is for beginner to intermediate players that are comfortable playing common first position chords. There are easy ways to play these tunes, but you can also work towards mastering them.

The workshop runs on Saturdays, November 16, 23, 30 and December 7* from 10:30-11:30am. Cost is $70 for all four weeks.
