Preston Reed

In the 1980's and 1990's Preston Reed reinvented how the acoustic guitar is played through a revolutionary approach called integrated percussive guitar playing,

In this eye-opening workshop you will learn how Preston's dynamic use of percussive devices and unusual playing ideas changed the landscape and expanded the realm of the acoustic guitar.

You'll discover how he creates a multitude of sonic and rhythmic effects including rim shots, bongo hits, slap harmonics, double hammer-ons, bar-hammer slides, two-hand tapping, right-hand fretting and other techniques.

Preston will perform and analyse several representative tunes from his concert repertoire and discuss key aspects of his technique and compositional approach.

This is your chance to gain special insight into integrated percussive guitar playing from the man himself!
