Got the rusty hands, Wintertime blues? Let’s Work It Out!
Hands-on Flatpicking sessions by one of the most renowned instructors in Acoustic Music.

The SATURDAY, March 14 workshop is geared toward upper Intermediate to Advanced players. I will expect attendees to have had some experience playing in a band setting or a jam. We will be moving quickly and covering as much territory as we can. The focus will be on timing, speed training, scales and technical studies, Flatpicked fiddle tunes and Bluegrass guitar solos. Attendees should also know at least the basic versions of standard tunes like “Old Joe Clark,” “Whiskey Before Breakfast” and “Big Mon.” Message me if you are an experienced player who does not know fiddle tunes and I will get you some files to get you started on these tunes, as we will be using them for speed training. Tyler will provide written materials, a smile, and some inspiration. Bring your guitar, a flat pick, capo and a portable recording device. A music stand is also recommended, but not required. Let’s have some fun with MUSIC!

Please message me to reserve a spot.
$50 admission fee due upon arrival.

The SUNDAY, March 15 workshop is geared toward entry-level pickers. I will expect attendees to have at least a very basic understanding of open chords, basic technique and notes in open position. In other words, make sure you have had a few lessons first. We will cover the basics of Flatpicking technique, bluegrass/old-time rhythm and The Major Scale. We will work on tone, timing, and methods for making the most of your practice time. AND we will learn a couple Flatpicked fiddle tunes. Tyler will provide written materials, a smile, and some inspiration. Bring your guitar, a flat pick and a portable recording device. Capo and music stand are also highly recommended, but not required. Let’s have some fun with MUSIC!
