Robert Johnson Guitar Workshop with Scott Ainslie Thursday, April 14th, 7:00pm - 9:00pm

$35 for the workshop

Celebrating the centennial of Blues legend Robert Johnson’s birth (1911-1938), Archie Edwards Blues Heritage Foundation is sponsoring a guitar workshop by Johnson authority and Blues musician Scott Ainslie, author of Robert Johnson/At The Crossroads and video teacher on the instructional DVD, Robert Johnson/Signature Licks.

Son House said that Robert Johnson must have sold his soul to the Devil to learn to play guitar the way he ...did. You may have a better way.
On Thursday April 14th, between 7:00pm and 9:00pm, guitarists will have an alternative to staying up late at the cross roads: Johnson authority and Blues musician Scott Ainslie will present a master class on the evolution of Johnson’s guitar style and a hands-on workshop for guitarists on his guitar style and techniques.

Ainslie says, “We’ll look at Johnson’s guitar parts in various keys, in standard tuning, and in open tuning, including his basic slide technique. Participants should bring a slide that fits securely on their little finger and a small audio recorder, if desired.”

Cost for the workshop is $35. Register for the workshop by sending an email to
