Totally Guitars Weekly Wrap Up November 13th, 2015
This week’s News seemed to address a bunch of cool things on the Forum lately. I was particularly drawn to Victor’s report on the Fretboard Summit and Michele’s always interesting musings. I started with a little jazzy tune that one of my students is working on. It might be recognizable, in spite of the fact that I totally butchered it.
Along with the usual rundown of new stuff, slightly limited due to alternate TG projects, I also got into some questions on the Forum. There was a little demonstration of lead thoughts with Tequila Sunrise, tips for Jay on Waltzing Mathilda, a little explanation of the IGC Saturday teacher’s concert videos that we just got back from the producers, and some thoughts on my promise to get to a lesson on While My Guitar Gently Weeps. This hopefully helps explain some of the obstacles I run in to with certain lesson plans.
In case you missed it, the new stuff this week included Vanessa’s lesson on Photograph by Ed Sheeran. This was very detailed as she went to the trouble to show a couple different approaches he uses, including a DADGAD arrangement.
We also had another peek inside a lesson with my young protege Chris. Chris can read music but he also learns very quickly by watching and listening so I don’t know that we will get to writing any of this down but we were working on Blood Brother by Tommy Emmanuel in this FOTW.
I hope everybody takes the time to check out the IGC videos. That Saturday night was really special and we certainly hope to recreate all the magic next year. Everything should be in place to open registration for both 2016 camps in just a few days.
Until next week-
Stay Tuned & In Touch,
