At the Guitar Summit Peter Finger – acoustic guitarist, guitar builder and publisher of the magazine ‘Akustik Gitarre’ – will give more detailed insights into his playing in two workshops and a masterclass.

With his music Peter achieves the perfect harmony of virtuosity, musicality and composition. The will always come across the sound of Debussy, Ravel or Stravinsky – and in the same breath may find himself in rock or in the wide world of jazz. Or he marvels at Finger’s almost orchestral, sometimes breathtakingly experimental mesh of rhythm, harmony and melody.

In his first workshop on Saturday, 28.09.2019 at 15:30, Peter Finger will open “the world of Open Tunings” to the participants. In addition to the standard guitar tuning, there are numerous alternative tunings with which you can create fascinating sounds. Peter gives some examples and shows how to avoid beginners mistakes.

The topic of his second workshop on Sunday, 29.09.2019 at 17 o’clock is “Playing guitar with expression”. This is about how to give a piece more expression through dynamics and tone shaping. Peter will highlight the development from a picking instrumental to a piece of music.
