STEVE PAGE – ONE CHORD AND THE TRUTH

In this workshop we will take a look at Mississippi John Hurt’s song Pay Day.

Pay Day is a beautiful song Mississippi John Hurt plays the song in Open D, without a slide, but we will be.

This is a great song for practicing thumb technique and playing some sweet licks, nearly all on the top string.

Bring a guitar, a slide and thumb pick (optional).

HARMONICA WORKSHOP – WOODSTOCK BOOGIE

Stuart McKay and Louise Maggs from ‘The Southern Slamdoor Band’ will be sharing a harmonica boogie riff, solo and vocals, inspired by Canned Heat’s Woodstock Boogie.

For use with a band, at jams or just for fun – to practice keeping your good boogie rhythm going!
