2020 Workshop

Worship Arts: Acoustic Guitar in Worship

3/7/2020 11:15 - 12:30 p.m. Room: N12

Acoustic Guitar in Worship

This empowering workshop for all Christian guitarists (intermediate through advanced) is designed to teach creative and expressive guitar playing techniques in a worship setting, combining the technical and fun aspects of guitar playing with spiritual passion. This workshop is a blend of participation, demonstration and teaching. Bring your guitar if you'd like. The majority of the workshop is hands-on where each person plays along with the techniques being demonstrated. Reggie inspires the correlation of dynamic faith in Jesus Christ with creative and expressive guitar playing. Reggie will cover:

- Expressive Techniques in Worship - Making Songs Flow (The Art of Transition) - Common Contemporary Chord Progressions - Scales and Contemporary Chords - Learning Technique through Songs - Gaining Confidence - Helpful Exercises

There are helpful materials available as downloads. Those who have attended either the Christian Guitar & Bass Conferences know how training from Reggie will give you a spirited “shot in the arm” to prepare you for ministry.
