Fingerpicking guitar workshop at Cygnet Folk Festival 2013
"I am a professional guitarist and guitar teacher, playing a variety of guitar music from rock and roll to ‘roots music, to acoustic blues to bluegrass and rhythm and blues for 30 years – or, I’ll admit, maybe a little more!
As well as performing and recording music I am an experienced guitar teacher, teaching most styles and techniques of guitar music to students of all ages and abilities from beginners to advanced levels. I specialise in Delta Blues, Piedmont Blues, ( also called double thumbing or ‘Travis’ fingerpicking), as well as bluegrass and roots music
At my guitar studio, beginner students are welcomed, also anyone who wants to learn a new style, brush-up and extend what they know, or get out of a ‘musical rut’.
Contact me by the email link for inquiries about personal tuition in the Melbourne area, or online.
Students are encouraged to develop their own style and soloing concepts while broadening their appreciation of different types of guitar music.
My special musical love is blues and ‘roots’ and bluegrass – traditional and contemporary. I would love to share my knowledge with you.
Above all -- I want you to have fun playing guitar. I'll help you! It’s a stimulating and enjoyable pastime and who knows where it might take you!
The purpose of this website is to give you a ‘taster’, an introduction to both acoustic blues and Piedmont fingerpicking styles..." Bob
