"The Songwriter"s Guitar" Workshop . For reservations and info, call (623) 640-6895 or email jack@jackwilliamsmusic.com.

About the workshop:
A songwriting workshop, but with an emphasis on how the guitar (or other instrument) plays a vital role in making the music whole, rather than being merely a "chord-vehicle" or something to hide behind when performing a song.

Topics to be covered:
*Considering every aspect of the guitar in the songwriting process, from initial ideas to finished performance
*Special emphasis on the "Guitar As Greek Chorus":
as accompanist, inspiration, commentator, colorist, comforter, crutch, and as equal partner in songwriting
*Discussing how and when the guitar can hinder the songwriting process, as well as how it can add melody, counter-melody, and the "glue" to vocal melody, which can sustain and propel a song
*Gentle discussion and critique of songs written (or in
progress) by the student.
