Monsters of Rock

Learn how to build powerful rhythm parts and construct effective solos. During the week we will explore power chords, open position chords and other ‘clever’ chord voicings. Lead guitar technique will focus on pentatonic tricks, blues scale licks, hammer-ons and pull-offs, and tips on improving your improvisation and vibrato.

You will also have the opportunity to perform in public at the student showcase on the final evening. The set list includes: AC/DC, Led Zeppelin, Aerosmith, Black Sabbath, Bryan Adams, Cream, Jimi Hendrix and Thin Lizzy.
