Announcing a new Meetup for Good Vibrations-Rockland Acoustic Guitar Group!

What: Marjorie Thompson Songwriting Workshop

When: Saturday, November 6,[masked]:00 PM

Price: $50.00 per person

Where: (A location has not been chosen yet.)

This a unique opportunity to take part in a songwriting workshop with a very gifted singer-songwriter and fingerstyle guitarist. Marjorie's last workshop with the group was two years ago and I'm still using things I learned in that workshop in my own songwriting. Marjorie currently serves as Jorma Kaukonen's (Hot Tuna and Jefferson Airplane guitarist) teaching assistant at his Fur Peace Guitar Camp where she also teaches her own workshops. She has 6 CD's to her credit and has appeared on the Oprah Winfrey show highlighting her accomplishments. She describes this workshop as follows:

Songwriting: craft and arrangement

In this workshop, Marjorie will describe her path to songwriting (and 6 original CDs) after nearly 40 years as a guitar player of Other People?s Music. She will present sample compositions as models for lyric and melody development plus suitable guitar accompaniments for ?coloring? a song. Participants will be encouraged to bring works in progress, including lyrics ?only (and poetry awaiting conversion to lyrics) or music ?only. We will delve into sample offerings and apply some of the key principles. Whether you are a beginner or a songwriter with some experience, this workshop will offer tangible ministrations to your emerging craft.

This will be a 3hr workshop at $50. Seats are very limited to make sure everyone's music gets individual attention. This is a unique opportunity to not only get feedback on your own music but to observe the process as she helps others as well. Please only respond yes if your sure you can make it as this is a paid event and we need to know that the people that say their attending will be there.

The workshop will be held at Jeff's house in the basement. Directions will be e-mailed prior to the workshop
