For Immediate Release: June 16, 2015; For more than 14 years’ aspiring musicians from all over the world have travelled to Canada for Guitar Workshop Plus to grow and develop their musical knowledge. The highlight of the sessions are the opportunities to learn and perform with world-class guest artists that have included Joe Satriani, Alex Lifeson (Rush), Steve Vai, Randy Bachman and Andy Summers (The Police).
In addition to classes in rock, blues, jazz, classical, acoustic, country, and complete beginner guitar, classes are offered in bass guitar, drums/percussion, keyboards, vocals and songwriting.

The Vancouver sessions are taking place August 11th-16th

PLANET ACOUSTIC with Michael Friedman and special guest Muriel Anderson

The class will examine advanced fingerstyle and flat picking, vocal accompaniment, altered guitar tunings, two-handed rhythmic tapping, harmonics, specialized right hand techniques (eg. tapping harmonics), stylistic genre, scales and arpeggios, ensemble play, and applied music theory. From the legendary stylings of Chet Atkins and Tommy Emmanuel to the modern acoustic stylings of Andy McKee this course will teach you ways to bring the acoustic guitar to the forefront as a solo and accompanying instrument. The incomparable Muriel Anderson will visit this course!

One of the world’s foremost fingerstyle guitarists and harp-guitarists, Anderson is the first woman to have won the National Fingerstyle Guitar Championship. Her unique approach to the instrument virtually transforms the guitar into a lyrical choir, then a marching band, then a Japanese koto, then a Bluegrass band, one minute launching into a Beatles’ tune and the next, Rodrigo’s Concerto de Aranjuez.

ROCK IMPROVISATION TARGET PRACTICE with Jon Finn and special guest Andy Timmons

Rock Improvisation Target Practice is a method developed by Jon Finn, which focuses on picking a note to “aim” for within a phrase. This allows the player to think more about conveying the feeling, and “telling the story.” In the course, Jon will present several chord progressions and suggest Target Note solutions, uses of scales and arpeggios and a variety of technical and artistic concepts. This course is meant for the intermediate to advanced player. Music reading ability is preferred but not required. Students in this course will enjoy a visit from rock great Andy Timmons.

Andy Timmons has sold over a million records worldwide as guitarist for pop-metal band Danger Danger. His discography includes 7 solo releases ranging from blazing guitar instrumentals, to blues, to pop. As a session player, he’s been featured on recordings by drumming legend Simon Phillips, Kip Winger, Paula Abdul, Paul Stanley, and countless radio and television jingles. Andy has been musical director/guitarist for several U.S. tours. He has also played alongside Steve Vai, Joe Satriani, Eric Johnson, Steve Morse, Mike Stern, Ace Frehley, Ted Nugent, and Pierre Bensusan. He has become one of the most respected and sought after clinicians.
