Looking forward to taking a jazz guitar workshop at Ipswich Jazz Festival 10.30am – 12.30.
The festival writes this about it:
For guitarists of all levels. Improve your soloing; straightforward ways to improve your playing and how to improve your understanding of chords, scales and modes and to use them in ways that will help you and which can be applied to any style of music. This is a chance to learn from a top jazz guitarist who will be playing with Jacqui Dankworth later that day.
Tickets for all workshops £16 with a maximum of 25 places
