Who can participate?

If you master some basic skills like chords, strumming, maybe a bit of fingerpicking and do have a solid basic knowledge of Guitar playing, you should do just fine. Whatever level of experience you have, we promise, that you will not be disappointed, there will be always plenty of challenges in further developing your skills.

The idea of this 1 week workshop is to give you some new fundamental, important "tools" to take home with you, so you will be able to improve on your techniques, composing, improvisation and get some inspiration to experiment with new approaches to percusive and Fingerstyle Guitar playing.
