Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

Guitar and Bass Strummit 2012The Ultimate Guitar Strummit and The Bass Strummit workshops would like to announce their faculty/staff for this year's two days of workshops on November 3 & 4 in Roanoke, VA. On guitar, acoustic and bluegrass guitar legend Tony Rice, Wyatt Rice, Tim Stafford, John Miller, and Bull Harman. Bass will feature Mike Bub, Todd Phillips, and Mike Conner as workshop hosts.

For the first time, the workshops will be located in the Holiday Inn Valley View in Roanoke, and we'll have some combined guitar/bass workshops, a special instructors show on Saturday night (exclusive to students only) and expert evaluation, set up, and instrument repair of your bass or guitar by Jerry Fretwell or John Miller.

A special bonus, we'll also be doing a book signing of Still Inside: The Tony Rice Story during the weekend with Tim & Tony, only the second time this has EVER happened, fans of Rice and his music should not miss this.

In past Guitar Strummits, the event has presented an open-to-the-public concert as part of the weekend's proceedings. This year they are doing something a bit different, with the Saturday Night Jam, which will feature music from all of their instructors in a private show for Students Only. So think of this, you're going to be able to attend essentially a "living room" style show with your instructors in a very intimate setting, up close and personal, and exclusive to you & your "significant other" for the evening. How's that for getting something that's available nowhere else? Don't wait, these classes are VERY limited in size and will fill quickly.

For the first time, we will combine the Guitar students with our Bass students on Sunday along with our Bass Strummit instructors Mike Bub & Todd Phillips for a unique look at how these two instruments work together to guide & direct a band.

Over the past 4 years, Strummit Works has attempted to create an in-depth workshop series in both bass and guitar, by employing some of the best players in the music world to teach our two-day sessions, and 2012 will be no exception. For the first time, they will also be combining the bass & guitar classes on Sunday's workshops to facilitate a better understanding of how instruments work together in a band setting.

The Bass Strummit III is a two day bass workshop with Mike Bub, Todd Phillips, Mike Conner and Jerry Fretwell. It will combine with the Ultimate Guitar Strummit on Saturday night for a very special jam with Tony Rice, Wyatt Rice, Tim Stafford, John Miller, and Bull Harman, who will be performing songs from their individual repertories. For our bass students, these songs will be the "bass-is" for the next day's classes. For everyone else, it will just be way cool :-)
