Guitar Workshop with Muriel Anderson
Open to guitarists of all levels. Muriel can help you make the most of your time with your guitar. She will cover technique, arranging, interpretation and inspiration, interspersing performance with discussion. Every participant will have the opportunity to ask questions, to explore techniques for better playing and musicianship. Muriel will also have some new hands-on techniques, riffs, or tunes to teach. Includes a free set of GHS strings to each participant and handouts will be provided. OK to bring your guitar and/or to record the workshop if you like.
One of the world’s foremost fingerstyle guitarists and harp-guitarists, Muriel Anderson is the first woman to have won the National Fingerstyle Guitar Championship. Her CD “Nightlight Daylight” was chosen as one of the top 10 CDs of the decade by Guitar Player Magazine and her “Heartstrings” recording accompanied the astronauts on the space shuttle Discovery. She has performed/recorded with Chet Atkins, Les Paul, Victor Wooten and Tommy Emmanuel. Her obvious joy of music, humor and her facility across the genres of folk, classical, jazz, bluegrass and international music is revered by guitarists worldwide. An engaging performer, Muriel’s 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, a Rodrigo concerto. Her video “Why Worry” has garnered a total of over 8 million views. Muriel is host of the renowned Muriel Anderson’s ALL STAR GUITAR NIGHT® and founder of the MUSIC FOR LIFE ALLIANCE charity.
