Steel String Guitar Workshop

The steel string guitar is one of the most popular and versatile instruments available. In this workshop Peppino D’Agostino will explain with musical examples and original exercises: multiple musical styles, various rhythms, string bending, percussive and slide techniques, complex open tunings, acoustic sound effects, bent harmonics and more!

A native of Italy, D’Agostino has made his considerable international mark as a musical artist on the guitar since he arrived in America 31 years ago. The readers of Guitar Player voted him Best Acoustic Guitarist, and Acoustic Guitar’s People’s Choice Awards graced him with a Bronze medal for Best Acoustic Album of All Time for his release “Every Step of The Way”. The current edition (July 2017) names Peppino one of the “Superheroes of Wood, Steel, and Nylon: 50 Transcendent Acoustic Guitarists”.
