WORKSHOP GURU PETER AUTSCHBACH’S ELECTRIC GUITAR TRAINING WORKSHOP WILL TAKE PLACE FROM 7th TO 9th JULY AT BILSTEIN CASTLE.
FIFTEEN SELECTED GUITARISTS CAN TAKE PART FREE OF CHARGE, WITH FREE BOARD AND LODGING.
AND AN AX8 FOR THE GUITARIST WHO LEAVES THE BEST IMPRESSION.
YOU CAN APPLY UNTIL THE 31st OF MAY
Called into being by Peter Autschbach and the Lennestadt-Kirchhundem Music School, the ‘E-Gi Training’ workshop is sponsored by, among others, the Landesmusikrat NRW and the Ministry for Family, Children, Youth, Culture and Sport, NRW.
Three instructors, Peter Autschbach, Richard Müller and Markus Ottenberg, will be helping the fifteen participants, who will be selected based on YouTube application videos. Each candidate must play a set piece and introduce themselves in a self-made video. The first applicants have already put up their videos on the workshop website and the deadline for applications is the 31st May The selection process will then take place in June. Rather than looking for the applicants who can play the set piece best or even fastest, the instructors will want to know your motivation for taking part. In short, it is important what you say when you introduce yourself in your application video.
MOTIVATION AND PASSION
So, it’s not just how well you play the guitar, but how motivated you are and how you approach it all. E-Gi Training is not intended to be a competition, nor should it be training for the elite. The workshop should quite simply bring people who are interested in music together and provide them with effective help. Participants can expect a weekend of professional electric guitar training from three highly qualified and experienced guitarists. How to successfully (and enjoyably) practise will be a topic and typical guitar techniques such as bending, slide, rakes, vibrato, harmonics, legato and sweep picking will not only be touched upon, but integrated into your playing.
THE MAIN PRIZE
The guitarist who makes the most positive impression and convinces the jury with motivation, dedication, musicality and talent will take home the big prize…
AND IT’S A GOOD ONE!
Yes, he or she will be taking home a brand new AX8, the game-changing complete solution for guitarists, with exquisite amp models (261 of them) and multi-effects processor in one small pedal board. Despite its diminutive dimensions, it nevertheless perfectly recreates the finely nuanced tones, dynamic playing feel and weighty punch of real tube amps.
