Handmade at Home Virtual Guitar Workshop Series: Susie Goehring

February 18 @ 4:00 pm 5:30 pm


Join us for oldtime guitar backup workshops online this winter!

Handmade Music School has asked 4 of our favorite guitar playing pals to share a little time with us online this winter discussing, demonstrating and teaching their award winning and distinctive guitar styles.

My goal in this session is to help guitar players become stronger and more confident players in the old-time style. I’ll present my take on technical considerations including handling the pick, finding chords, bass lines, strumming dynamics, and tone. I’ll also demonstrate some of the simple shortcuts I like to use in chording and in playing runs, techniques that can make playing a little easier but hopefully just as effective. I’ll also share my enthusiasm for playing back-up guitar—it can be so much fun!


These hour and a half long workshops will be a great opportunity to hear some really inspiring music, learn some new insights and techniques, and reconnect with your community in the cold dark of winter.  The loose format of these sessions will be:

  • a short intro where each artist is either interviewed by the Handmade Music staff, or talks a little about themselves and their approach to stringband music and guitar back-up
  • plays a few of their favorite recordings of guitar backup, talks about why they love them
  • plays a few tunes with a friend or 3
  • teaches a tune or song or 3
  • a question and answer zoom hangout session

Handmade Music School’s Joebass (who curated this lineup) will kick the series off on December 19th with his own guitar class in which he will feature recordings of the 4 guest instructors as well as a few of his own tips and tricks.

Price is pay what you can with a strongly suggested donation of $25 and a minimum $5.
