MC music workshops at Tall City Blues Fest

Master Class: Guitar Improvization & Phrasing with Noah Wotherspoon

Tall City Blues Fest is the signature summer event in downtown Midland and the best blues fest in Texas. Tall City Blues Fest 2017, presented by Downtown Midland Management District, will be held in downtown Midland July 14-16.

We are partnering with Tall City Blues Fest this year to offer music workshops in conjunction with the festival. All of the workshops will be held on Saturday, July 15, at the Doubletree Hotel, next to the festival grounds. Proceeds from the workshop registration fees will go to fund 2018 Kids’ College scholarships.



Master Class: Guitar Improvization & Phrasing

Workshop Leader: Noah Wotherspoon

Deep dive into a study of improvisation, phrasing and the use of dynamics when soloing. Workshop leaders will break down the architecture of a blues guitar solo and analyze the elements the masters like B.B. King and Otis Rush used to communicate so effectively with their guitars and connect with their audiences. A discussion on incorporating peaks and valleys into your solos and what techniques and approaches can best help you tell a story with your guitar will be covered in this advanced workshop.

What to Bring: An electric guitar and small amp, along with intermediate to advanced experience with electric guitar. Participants are also welcome to bring a recording device, such as an iPhone or iPad to record for later review.
