In this masterclass Stuart Ryan will guide you through approaches to fingerstyle warmups and practise, getting acquainted with altered tunings and DADGAD and building and developing arrangements for solo guitar.
With the release of his critically acclaimed new solo fingerstyle album, ‘The Way Home’, award winning guitarist Stuart Ryan re-enforces his position as one of the UK’s finest acoustic fingerstyle guitarists.
Diverse, but never disparate and with over 15 year’s worth of professional live performance experience the highly regarded guitarist has learned how to showcase the instrument to its fullest potential.
Although acclaimed by guitarists, Stuart’s live show also draws admiration from those who just love the sound of the instrument and with his relaxed on-stage demeanour and varied repertoire, he never fails to leave an audience with smiles on their faces.
Stuart will be conducting a Masterclass at 12:15 Saturday 10 September and on our Main Stage at 15:00 Sunday 11 September.
