ArtistWorks, the leading interactive lifestyle social learning platform, and leading free online guitar resource, JustinGuitar.com, present a free online workshop featuring world-renowned solo jazz guitarist Martin Taylor.
The workshop takes place online October 1st at 8PM GMT - 1 PM Pacific Daylight Time.
Guitar enthusiasts will be treated to impromptu performances, techniques and tips for fingerstyle players, and Q&A with the legendary solo jazz master himself.
Pat Metheny called Martin Taylor “one of the most awesome solo guitar players in history.” Jeff Beck says, “He out-shreds all of us put together.” He's received 15 British Jazz Awards, a Grammy nomination, and in 2002, was appointed an MBE by the Queen for “Services to Music”.
Just off for a successful world tour with fellow guitar great, Tommy Emmanuel in support of their latest CD “The Colonel and the General,” Taylor now treats fans to a special hour of all things guitar.
In addition to his acclaimed performing career, Taylor has spent the past three years pioneering a new way to teach guitar at the ArtistWorks Online Fingerstyle Guitar School with Martin Taylor.
At the ArtistWorks Online Fingerstyle Guitar School with Martin Taylor, students can learn from Martin’s complete library of online video lessons and tabs. They can use ArtistWorks Video Exchange™ Feedback Platform to submit practice videos and get personalized video responses from Martin with feedback and additional exercises.
These Video Exchanges are paired together, combined with the lessons and made available for all students to see and learn from.
JustinGuitar.com Founder, Justin Sandercoe will moderate the event which will include members of Taylor’s Online Fingerstyle Guitar School as well as surprise guests.
