Guitarist Tom Dempsey and bassist Tim Ferguson Webcast February 21

Tom Dempsey and Tim FergusonNew York City, NY (February 20, 2008) -- Veteran National Guitar Workshop faculty members Tom Dempsey (guitar) and Tim Ferguson (bass) are appearing in two free online performance/clinics at WorkshopLive on February 21. Dempsey and Ferguson will share their approaches to jazz improvisation and field questions during a Livecast.

The first performance, "The Art of Melodic Jazz Improvisation for Guitarists and Bassists," will air at 7:30 p.m. EST. Dempsey and Ferguson plan to share their approaches to jazz improvisation. Through this session, viewers can learn to take standard chord progressions found in jazz and create melodic improvisations through the use of diatonic scales, arpeggios, melodic development, rhythmic motifs and repetition. The idea is to learn how to stop thinking and start creating musical improvisations.
