_Sweet Willie_ Posted March 2, 2003 Share Posted March 2, 2003 Hey y'all! I just got in the mail a flyer about the National Guitar Workshop's summer programs. They'll be out here in Chicago at the end of July offering both the weeklong "bass intensive" program and a "blues bass seminar." I did a "search" on this forum and saw that JeremyC has taught at one of these. Also, forum originator, lurker, occasional participant, and bass educator extraordinaire Ed Friedland has been involved in the past and will be teaching the jazz bass session in CA. Even though I think I can free up the time in July, I'm not sure yet whether I can pony up the $$$ to participate in one of the two Chicago bass programs (being local, though, I would save some money on travel expenses and lodging, but would still be looking at a $500 tab!). That said, can anyone (Jeremy and Ed included) tell me anything they know about this workshop? For example, how much can be learned during the intensive week? How are the instructors? What kinds of "guiding philosophies" or pedagogies are there? Is the experience exhilirating, exhausting, etc.? What are the expectations of the students? The flyer I rec'd in the mail is very informative, but it would be nice to hear from folks who have participated as students or instructors, or even know folks who have participated. Thanks! Peace. --Willie spreadluv Fanboy? Why, yes! Nordstrand Pickups and Guitars. Messiaen knew how to parlay the funk. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
