Winner of Australia's Got Talent, Joe Robinson, is one of the Fingerstyle guitars great young players. Premier Guitar says... “Once in a great while a young guitarist captures the attention of music lovers early in his career and manages to sustain this interest as he matures creatively and sheds the 'prodigy' label. Joe Robinson is one of those rare talents.” Joe will be talking about his new project and playing some great tunes. TUESDAY MAY 28TH - PLAYING BY EAR - HEARING CHORD CHANGES. One of the most important guitar skills is to hear chord changes and be able to play them by ear. With a little bit of training you can listen to songs and understand what chords are being played.

  1. Colts owner spends over $5 million at guitar auction The darn guy kept outbidding me! 🙂
  2. Kudos to @DianeB for her day by day reporting of the conference. The only energy I could muster at the end of the day was to turn down the covers and fall into bed. Highlights for me were: The meet and greet - It was wonderful to see old friends once again and to meet newcomers. Since most on the forum don't use their real names, it was great to finally link a face and real name to a forum ID. Just before turning in on Tuesday, Collin walked me through his fingerstyle lessons for the week. He is as talented an educator as he is a guitar player. The fingerstyle concert at the conclusion of day one was wonderful. Collin, Van Larkins, Phil Keaggy, and Russ Barenberg were terrific. I had long wanted to meet Russ Barenberg - the tone that he gets out of his guitar is truly inspiring. Closed out day one with Collin and friends (Antonio, Forest, and Van) at ML Rose's. We didn't close the place down, but were still out way past my bed time. 🙂 Day two was filled with great workshops - including a very helpful one by Steve that focused on hearing chord changes. Day three included one of my favorite workshops - Steve and Dino Pastin on improvisation. Day three ended with Jack Pearson's Birthday Bash at 3rd and Lindsley - the music was awesome - the drunk women dancing in front of us, not so much. It all happened too fast and was over too quickly. I am already looking forward to next year! Photo below with Russ Barenberg
  3. I started with the fingerstyle course and found that as a beginner, the course material was way too advanced for me. I then purchased the main Learn and Master Guitar course and set the fingerstyle course aside until I reached session 10. As you can see from my signature, I still have not progressed very far on the fingerstyle course! 🙂 Good luck!
  4. Have a fabulous time, Dave!  School workdays still going on for me this week, but maybe next year we'll be back.  Enjoy every minute.

      Thanks Nancy - I hope you can make it next year. The fall fingerstyle retreat is also a great time - and much more relaxed than the summer conference.

      We were over your way last night. One of the guys I met at last year's fingerstyle retreat lives just of 64 between Etowah and Brevard. He had one of the Truefire educators (Richard Gilewitz) at his house as well as a few other guitar playing friends. It was a nice, but rainy, evening.

  5. I think that course is currently on sale at Truefire.
  6. Awesome - look forward to seeing you!
  7. Jack Pearson Birthday Bash tickets purchased - that is going to be a great show!
  8. Welcome Joel - You will have a blast!
  9. Amen! Although, I don't think I could drive around Nashville during the summer with my air conditioner turned off 🙂 I am going to work on getting up earlier to practice. Thanks for having Joe on Live Lessons.
  10. Since you have a music background, I would pick up where you left off and use the first two sessions as warm-up exercises. Glad you are back and good luck!
  11. Great looking guitar Mark! Are you bringing it to the conference?
  12. That is a great DVD - I highly recommend it as well. And if you want to go the extra mile, I also highly recommend Greg's fretwork and setup class. He used to conduct them in Nashville - I believe he is only offering them in Nazareth, PA now.
  13. I have been following your blog and was sorry to hear that the tumor has returned. You will be in our thoughts and you will be missed!
