PLAYA Guitar Master Class: Jamming from the Ground Up / June 5 to 8 — SIGN UP

June 5 - June 8

Guitarists, come spend a weekend in the Oregon Outback, immersed in roots-based music and improvising. Prepare to be inspired by high desert vistas and focused guitar instruction. You’ll spend three nights in comfortable, single- or double-occupancy cabins and be treated to dinner in PLAYA’s beautiful Commons. Paul will share songs, techniques, handouts, and moral support. You’ll experience two full days and one evening of deep jamming and fun, unplugged from distractions.
Paul Christopulos taught college guitar classes and private students in Sonoma County for thirty years. His series of instruction books, Know Your Guitar, teach muscle memory as an essential part of guitar mastery. He has performed with his roots band 3 on a Match and as a jazz combo leader around the San Francisco Bay Area. He’s been a music critic, composer, songwriter, and arranger.

Check-out is at 10 a.m. Monday, June 8.
