"CAGED Theory" Workshop W/Jana Pochop March 10th 10:00AM - 12:00PM

OYOU Workshop 

March 10th 

10:00AM to 12:00PM 

Pastries and refreshments provided

Wilory Farm

Martindale, Texas

(Directions and information sent upon purchase of ticket) 

 

Teacher: Jana Pochop

Level: Intermediate + 

Ages: 18 +  

Class is limited to 10 people 

Class Description: The CAGED theory is a way of revealing patterns of notes on the guitar fretboard, therefore helping you to remember where all the notes are positioned. This is immensely helpful for finding new ways to play chords, find arpeggios, or being able to pick out a quick lead part in any key. We'll work through the 5 major CAGED chord forms and make the guitar neck more familiar to you. We will also talk about using this method to transpose keys using a capo. (This class will make you popular at parties and folk festivals, among other health benefits).

Maines began his recording and producing career in 1974. Over the past 40 years, Maines has worked on approximately four-thousand albums alongside some of the most significant figures in country, rock, and Texas music. In addition to his producing credits, Maines is an A-list steel guitar player and multi-instrumentalist. His work has been heard on countless recordings. Maines has been inducted into the Buddy Holly Walk of Fame in Lubbock, Texas, individually and as a member of the Maines Brother's Band. He was inducted into the Austin City Limits Hall of Fame June 2014. He has made more appearances on the PBS show than anyone else in the history of the program.
