Welcome to third annual Deadstring Trad Guitar Immersion Day!

Attention Guitarists: Join Flynn Cohen and Matt Heaton for a full day of guitar immersion on beautiful Cambridge, Massachusetts. Students will choose from 10 different class options and two different guitar tunings — Dropped D & DADGAD — as well as being treated to a house concert from the hosts. The goal of this experience is to move you closer to a complete understanding of the accompaniment of traditional fiddle music through immersion in specific fingerboard knowledge, as well as drills and exercises to broaden the scope of your acoustic guitar playing. Class offerings include: 

chord vocabulary
strumming techniques
ear training for trad music
explanation of the modes
accompaniment masterclass
