Alex de Grassi Workshop: "The Orchestrated, 3D Sound", 11am
Solo guitarists must provide all the components that you might expect to hear in a band or orchestra: melody, harmony, rhythm and bass lines. Just as individual instruments would be directed to play their parts with particular dynamics and articulations, a solo guitar performance must also shape each of the parts to deliver an orchestrated, "three dimensional sound".
Alex will demonstrate the use of dynamics, accents, and articulations by presenting excerpts with tabs from his unique compositions and arrangements. He will also be happy to answer questions about the creative process or just about anything else. Bring your guitars!!! $35
