Guitar Workshop – Contemporary Fingerstyle with Adam Miller

A workshop in fingerstyle guitar with a focus on creating different feels and improvisation

This is the first of three guitar workshops with prominent Australian guitarists at USQ Artsworx this year!

With a focus on improvisation, this workshop will expand your technical knowledge across multiple music genres.

Participants will learn a number of approaches, which will help them to play a variety of styles in solo guitar, focusing on jazz and blues for the improvisation element. Adam will also introduce you to the concept of developing the freedom to improvise while playing multiple parts.

This workshop is suitable for both acoustic, electric and bass guitar and is scheduled immediately before Adam’s feature concert in the USQ Arts Theatre – a ticket to the concert is included in your workshop tuition. Players of all levels are welcome to attend and participants will have the freedom to set their own level of practical involvement.
