Double the Strings, Double the Fun! Do you ever wonder what playing a 12-string guitar is like? Do you own one and want to compare notes with other players? Come hang out with David Ianni and talk 12-strings for an informal evening. Bring your own instrument or try one out—Golden Link has a drawing for a guitar that happens to be a 12-string Blue Ridge VR40-12, courtesy of Stutzman‘s Guitar Center.
This workshop will acquaint you with 12-string guitars, explore a few different playing styles, discuss what music works best, and cut through some of the learning curve. It’s also a chance to talk about what to buy. David has been playing 12-string seriously for five or six years, but 20 years all told. He enjoys Gordon Bok, Leo Kottke, Leadbelly, Pete Seeger and Mark Spoelstra and others on the 12-string. See if you, like David, are drawn to its “versatility and the fuller, ringing sound.”
After the workshop, attend the second half of the usual Tuesday evening sing-around and add to the sound! *Please note this is the first Tuesday of December.
