  4. Introduction to Finger Style Blues – Students will learn picking patterns, playing melodies as well as using the thumb to develop a solid bass while learning tunes from the early years of acoustic blues.
  5. Easy Folk Songs for the Beginning Guitar Player – In this workshop students will learn several folk songs that are popular in jams. Songs will be everything from the traditional to more contemporary songs that can be played with three chords – or more if students are able!
