Masterclasses at The Institute
18 September 2012
London’s Institute of Contemporary Music Performance (an Academic Supporter of BASCA) is delighted to present a series of masterclasses featuring two true guitar legends, Jay Stapley and Jerry Donahue. The format of these unmissable evenings will be a combined masterclass and concert, which will showcase the specialities of each of these incredible session guitarists.
British guitarist and Institute tutor Jay Stapley has a CV like few others having worked with Roger Waters, Mike Oldfield, Suede, Toyah and Scott Walker to name but a few. He will be demonstrating sounds and effects for guitarists, how to use effects pedals and the creation of classic rock lead and rhythm sounds as well as looking at high gain control using hybrid picking.
American guitarist Jerry Donahue is a respected master of the British folk rock scene and is best known for his work with Fairport Convention and Fotheringay. He will be revealing the tricks behind his famous left hand technique and showing you his own masterful approach to string bending, giving you tips and techniques to help you explore the full potential of your guitar’s voice.
These events offer rare opportunities to spend an evening with two remarkable session guitarists, in a friendly environment, as they share their ‘tricks of the trade’.
