Guitar Improv

About

Imagine rocking out on your guitar for a whole week this summer! In this workshop, you’ll jam with other musicians as you learn how to improvise on the guitar. Explore a variety of musical styles as you learn the scales, chords, and music theory that will give you the knowledge you need to be able to improvise over a wide variety of songs. You’ll explore great riffs and licks that you can add to your bag of tricks, but also start finding your own voice as a guitarist.
