Bluegrass Guitar with Mike Wilhoyte (Blue & Lonesome)
San Francisco Bluegrass & Old-Time Festival Workshop

Playing rhythm is the primary role of the guitar player in any bluegrass band, yet its not often discussed. This workshop will cover rhythm techniques, variations that support other band members and how to achieve dynamics in a band. Topics will include right hand techniques and how to get power out of G and bass runs. Mike will also discuss lead playing, including approaches for creating breaks that respect the melody without sounding like a bunch of licks and runs thrown together. Right hand techniques for flatpicking and cross picking will also be covered, along with basic musical structures that allow you to move up and down the neck and play out of any chord without feeling lost.

Mike Wilhoyte has deep roots in the traditional bluegrass style. Mike first heard Bill Monroe, Doc Watson and other first generation players, when he was 13 years old, in his hometown of Toledo, Ohio. He soon decided that bluegrass music was the music he would play. Before moving to California in 1989, Mike defined his energetic and melodic guitar style in numerous bands in northwest Ohio and most notably, The Raisin River band with longtime friend Jim Hurst. Since moving to the Bay Area he began playing with the nationally known band Roanoke and more recently with Blue & Lonesome. More on Mike at
