Information about the “Harmonica and Guitar Workshop” Saturday 19. August – Saturday 26 August 2017
In this unique workshop, Ryan Donohue and Marko Jovanovic will show you the secrets to playing together successfully on guitar and harmonica.
The workshop is divided into two sections. In the first section, guitarists and harmonica players will be taught separately. Working from each player’s individual ability, the guitarists will focus on songs that will help them to learn the essential fingerpicking techniques (slide, thumb rolls and alternate bass picking). Right from the beginning the main focus of the instruction will be on playing together with the harmonica players. The harmonica players will pay special attention to improvisation and also learn how to play rhythmic accompaniment in the songs.
In the second section of the workshop, the guitarists and harmonica players will apply what they have learned in small groups. In addition to playing together, the participants will also work on their listening skills, feeling the musical direction and experimentation.
Ryan Donohue and Marko Jovanovic will be there to make suggestions and share useful tips. The goal is to perform one or more songs successfully together.
The workshop will take place at Hotel Balatura, located in the beautiful, picturesque mountains of Tribalj, Croatia.
