Martin’s guitar workshops are open to players of all levels, you just have to be desirous of learning.
Come armed with as many questions as you can think of to do with the guitar and immerse yourself in all things guitar-related for the weekend. The workshops are completely question led and do not involve anyone – except Martin – playing in front of anyone else during the days. The evenings are given over to sessions and trying out things that were talked about during the day. There is plenty of time to collar Martin in the bar, or the workshop room, for a one to one chat but most of the time we find that people are eager to try out concepts discussed earlier on.
Martin is often working on new arrangements at the time of the workshops and is happy to demonstrate how he chooses songs or starts to work on tunes and original ideas. Above all though, the workshops are determined by the things participants want to talk about and everyone from beginners to professionals come away inspired and energised by the two and a half days … particularly Martin himself. Believe us, he wants to do nothing but talk about guitar all weekend as much as you do …!
Friday starts at around 6pm and goes through til an evening meal about 8pm, with informal playing, talking and sessions in the evening.
Saturday runs from 10am through to the evening again. With breaks.
Sunday runs from 10am – 4.30/5.00pm to give people time to get home that evening.
