The Course

Please note that there are only 3 places left on this course.

Develop your creative playing in this practical workshop with Krish Thiruchelvam. In this session, you will explore different ways of using the electric guitar.

The workshop includes a wide variety of techniques for you to try, from using a range of guitar effects to looping and riff building. This workshop is open to all young guitarists, but to get the most from the workshop participants should be able to play a range of simple songs and have knowledge of basic chords.

Do bring any pedals you already own and you will have the chance to try out effects such as the Line 6 M5 Stompbox Modeler and t.c. electronic's Nova System
