A Mindful Approach to Mindless Performance - Zen Art of Rhythm Guitar
- 1 hr1 hour
- 75 US dollars$75
These lessons are my way of sharing an approach & philosophy to playing that I've been fortunate enough to learn during my years as a plank spanker and shaped by some incredible mentors such as my dear friend, the incredibly talented, Elliott Randall, my amazing teachers at the Hartford Conservatory of Music and the dozens of players I've shared the stage with in the smoke-filled, beer soaked clubs in NYC. Not to mention the moments shared in the studio and stage with some of the greatest players in rock n roll. It's about how to get BEYOND the chops and techniques. Part musical appreciation deep dive into the giants of rhythm guitar playing (but not ignoring what can be learned from other great instrumentalists), part understanding how listening is as, if not more, important than playing, why getting the beat into your body is must learn technique and how to become the generous linchpin in the band. I want to teach you how to be “in the moment,” find your groove, forget everything you've learned to let your heart and your “voice” shine through the music. And ultimately how to have fun and share the pure joy to be found in playing music.
