Blues In The Schools

 —  —

Fort Simpson, N'Dilo, NWT

Folk ON The Rocks and Northern Arts and Cultural Ctr. are bringing Rick up for his seventh year working in the schools and he "couldn't be happier! This is very rewarding work with the youth of the north."

Rick's Licks guitar workshop

 —  —

Bluesfest School of Music and Art, 450 CHURCHILL AVE. N, OTTAWA, ON K1Z 5E2

During this workshop, you will find ways to compliment a song as a second – or even third – guitarist. A second guitar playing the same as the first does not add much depth to a song. Give those other guitars a chance to shine and add some interest to your song. Come explore chord inversions, riffs and rhythmic ideas that lift a song up while still supporting the vocal. Learn techniques that are useful in various kinds of music. This will be a fun afternoon for all. Please bring examples of songs you play that could use a stronger second guitar part. All ages are welcome and current BSOMA students are strongly encouraged to attend!
