I’ll be giving two seminars at the first Edinburgh Guitar and Music Festivals.

Saturday 25 May – Fingerstyle for all styles

In this workshop I’ll be looking at how people have played fingerstyle over the years, the changing styles and techniques, and how their technique affected the music they played. I will also perform some classical guitar, some ragtime, as well as my own arrangements of Scottish music in Open D tuning.

Monday 27 May – Ukulele for Guitarists

I will introduce the family of ukuleles, the techniques used, a little background history, and perform lots of items from my seven ukulele fingerstyle books.

Hope to see you there. See the Festival website for details.
