Sponsored by Avocet Guitars, this session is designed for new players. It will cover essentials like; common tunings, basic chord shapes and simple strumming technique. This is a fun session, designed to provide players with some basic building blocks and a few crafty ideas.

We will try to cater for everyone, however a G-D-G tuned 3 string guitar will be best suited to this workshop. A few loan instruments will be available for new players – please pre-book at the Avocet stand.

Ray Lakeman is one half of Poet and the Fool and also performs as HGT, an acoustic CBG blues and roots group.
