Tuck Andress Workshop: Guitar Revisited
"Playing one-on-one with Patti has challenged me far more than any of the hundreds of bands I played with previously. It constantly begs for a level of technique, mastery of resources, concentration, listening, flexibility, emotional intensity and general ferocity of approach that I had witnessed but not experienced. It has also humbled me, forcing me to repeatedly reconsider everything I think I know, discarding anything and everything if I discover something that will ultimately work better.  If I am an expert at anything, it is probably this."
- Tuck Andress

In this workshop, Tuck will apply his deconstruction/reconstruction process to as many aspects of guitar playing as possible with the hope that everyone will find something transformational or at least thought-provoking along the way. This full day workshop will explore a lot of ground, through a mixture of lecture/demonstration and hands-on ... and with plenty of serendipitous side-tracking sparked by questions.  Tuck's goal is to share his most valued discoveries to help you become the best possible self-teacher.
