Unlocking the Guitar Neck

  • Guitar
  • Instrumental
  • Online Classes


Sick of being constrained to open chords? Wanting to find all those tasty notes and chords your favorite songs have, but don’t know where to start or how to break it down into bite-size chunks?

Through the use of a few scales and chord positions, this workshop opens up the whole guitar neck for a lifetime of musical exploration and wonder. Diagrams, worksheets and select repertoire will be given.

The goal of this workshop is to enhance your musical tool box. The information transmitted will be CONCEPTUAL in that it can be applied to ALL music/styles. Light music theory will be discussed and more importantly APPLIED TO THE GUITAR NECK. Students will be able to walk away with a solid practice routine regardless of style and song-taste tailored to their own time-constraints. This workshop functions for the dabbler (10-15 minutes of playing time a day) or the obsessor (1-8 hours of playing a day).

Both single-note playing (melodies) and chords will be discussed.

Pre-requisites: Must be able to sing a major scale or identify it by ear (do-re-mi-fa-sol-la-ti), the names of the strings of the guitar (Lowest to highest: E A D G B E) and open chords (E, A, D, G, C, F).

The workshop will be taught on the Zoom internet platform. Instructions for accessing the online course will be sent to you by email 24 hours before class begins.

If you have to miss a class —no problem— a recording will be available to catch up.

This class will be held from 6:00-7:00pm ET on Wednesdays, May 1, 15, 22, 29, June 5

Stash Wyslouch

  • Bluegrass
  • Guitar

Polish-Colombian Stash Wyslouch is an avant-garde Bluegrass guitarist, singer and songwriter. His music delights in story-telling, improvisation and outer-space worthy composition. Despite his Heavy-Metal beginnings in middle and high school, Bluegrass music has been central to Wyslouch’s life for the past 15 years touring and recording with groups such as The Deadly Gentlemen, Bruce Molsky’s Mountain Drifters, The Jacob Jolliff Band, and Tony Trischka’s Early Roman Kings.

His 4th and most recent album “Plays and Sings Bluegrass Vol. II” was released April 30, 2021. Conceived as a gift back to the music that’s framed his career, “Plays and Sings Bluegrass Vol. II” is a collection of zanily deconstructed Bluegrass classics. “Wyslouch tries to approach bluegrass from completely new angles — upside down, sideways, an interdimensional vortex only accessible from within his own mind.” – WBUR.org (March 2021, A. Mason)
