John Knowles will share his approach to arranging for solo fingerstyle guitar. He’ll bring examples (music/TAB/recordings) to illustrate big ideas you can use in your own work.
“I became an arranger when I couldn’t figure out how to play what I was hearing on recordings. I learned to make up stuff… intros, harmonies, bass lines, etc. that seemed to fit. Now I know how important it is to study and learn from the best players and arrangers… not just guitarists.” John’s been at it for 60+ years and he’s worked with some of the best including Chet Atkins, Jerry Reed, Lenny Breau, Tommy Emmanuel and The Romero Family. Chet won a Grammy for his recording of John’s arrangement of The Entertainer. Guitarists all over the world have learned from his publications and workshops.
He’ll send you more information and a link to his shopping cart so you can pay the $250 workshop fee. ************ To hear John's beautiful arrangement of "The Nearness of You" click the youtube link below.
