Workshop: Introduction To Slide Guitar

Slide Guitar Workshop Series

Slide Guitar Workshop

“Introduction To Slide Guitar”

Saturday July 18, 3:30pm – 5pm

@ The Guitar Gym Indooroopilly

Hosted by Matt “Blues Hound” Beagley

Slide guitar is a whole new world of guitar playing. It is a staple of blues, folk and country music and its applications are only limited by what you are willing to do with it. In this workshop you will be introduced to the slide and given the first steps to learning how it works and how to start developing your skills effectively. You will come out having learnt effective pressure, string muting, and vibrato, as well as hopefully a few little tricks to start playing right away.

After this workshop we hope you will have an interest in the slide as we will have only just begun to explore its possibilities.

You are encouraged to bring your own slide as we will only have a few spare slides.


Please contact us to reserve your spot.


Visitors Welcome.

Play What You Hear

Play What You Hear  – Aural Training Workshop Series.

Ever wondered how the experts seem to effortlessly work out how to play a song just by a quick listen? Some people might think this is a magical talent that only appears after years of experience playing an instrument, but, it’s actually easier than you may think – the methods are easily attainable even for beginners.

These workshops are designed to get your ears trained up to listen in the correct way to allow you to work out your favourite songs without having to rely on the sometimes dubious internet transcriptions!

At the same time these new skills will help you in other areas on your instrument from better improvisation techniques to working out how to begin writing your own music and songs. After all, your ears are going to be your most important guide on the road to mastering music so let’s see if we can tune it up for you!

There are currently 3 sequential workshops in this series.
