For this class description, we hear from Jorma himself:

This is one of my Level 3 (intermediate level) classes so that means if you are in this class, you can play fingerstyle guitar pretty well and your thumb is now well behaved and can keep a steady bass line. Timing of a song is everything so we will talk a lot about that and put it to work so it becomes part of what you think about when you start a song. We tend to speed up when we play. I don’t know why that is but I am just as guilty of that when I am on stage with one or more players. In this class I teach you how to keep time . I’ll use my songs as a backdrop but you can apply this to your own songs to be sure. I’ll cover basically every part of the song (my songs) in intermediate level fingerstyle language. Which basically means, I’ll help secure where you are in your playing and introduce you to the next level of playing. I’ll teach you how I arranged the songs and how to make them playable. The focus will be on bringing the pieces I choose to meet the groove, tone, texture and creativity of the song.

The workshop will be taught on the Zoom internet platform. Instructions for signing on will be sent to registrants in advance.
