WYCGS are very excited to host a workshop from the multi-award-winning acoustic fingerstyle guitarist Will McNicol. In this workshop, Will will discuss the fascinating middle ground between classical and acoustic guitar playing, and where the two have inspired one another in contemporary performance and composition. Focusing attention on the right-hand, exercises and extracts of pieces will be used to give participants ideas of how to improve their tonal expression and control. There will also be opportunity for a Q&A centred around Will's performance from the previous evening at Arts@Trinity.

This will be a fascinating workshop that will be of use and interest to classical and acoustic players alike, so please do pass on the details to any acoustic guitar players you might know. The workshop is at 7.30pm on Wednesday April 11th, at the Yorkshire College of Music and Drama on St. Marks Avenue. Entrance is £10, and places are limited so please get in touch to reserve a place, either through Facebook or at wyclassicalguitarsociety@gmail.com.
