Rory Gallagher's Acoustic Styles and Techniques

Workshop Room

The session will explore Rory Gallagher's many acoustic styles which ranged from ragtime and country blues through to Celtic tunings, bottleneck slide playing and his Irish folk influences. Whilst Rory will always be remembered for the searing emotion of his electric guitar playing, the spirit of his style was firmly routed in his acoustic guitar playing and he would always say to players that they should begin with acoustic guitar and constantly refer to it.
