Ronnie Shellsit will be hosting a workshop in Houston on February 27th, 2010.
It will cover the following topics:
Mixing techniques within your playing: In this portion of the workshop we'll go through a handful of specific riffs that have great examples of how you can mix various techniques to create a more well rounded solo.
Playing one position with different styles: In this section we will take 1st, 2nd and 3rd position and work on each one with various different grooves/styles of blues. This is especially important and interesting when it comes to 2nd & 3rd position. We are going to focus on approaches to playing those different styles for each position with examples of ideas/riffs for each of them.
Setting Amps for harmonica/getting good amplified tone: We'll go through the exact process that I would take to set up various amplifiers. This would be a perfect place/time to bring your amp out(if you have one) and I can help you produce the best tone for your mic/amp combo. Even if you don't have an amp you can learn how to set up amps that you use at jams or wherever. It's important knowledge for any harp player.
