Topics of this 2019 session:

Kai Kurosawa
The great avant-garde musician will show and explain his incredible technique. Already tapping was a revolution, but Kai came with something even newer: the double pluck. in othetr words, he plucks with each hand. This combination of plucking and tapping is really something new.

Daniel Schell:
– General tapping techniques: fingering on various boards (including the guitar)  and tunings ( 4ths, 5ths, crafty)
-Harmony: Traditional, jazz and new chord changes. We shall continue the chords studies which we started last year. and specially the four-notes chords we studied with Randy Strom
Watch the scores of “Spring Comes” and Blue E-Tap.
Minor 8
– Rhythmics: Even and uneven metrics: Using such meters as 4/4 , 5/8 and 7/8 and alternating them.
– Creating interesting rhytms and lines on those meters and others. This year we shall concentrate on producing interesting long improvisations using the phasing of independent motives, a subject which Daniel has implemented and played since many years.
– Multi motive improvisation: one different motive in each hand.


Wolfgang Daiss: the greatest and most impressive tapping reader of all times, Wolgang teaches individually during the session. Here is your opportunity to have a -free- private lesson with legend Wolfgang.
