The Holy Grail Guitar Show Goes Online

The Holy Grail Guitar Show website will be turned into a gateway to participating exhibitors’ online activities.

Germany (April 29, 2020) -- We have invited the originally participating exhibitors at The Holy Grail Guitar Show to put their usual tools aside for a moment and get creative with their cameras and keyboards.

On the original Show weekend, May 2 & 3, The Holy Grail Guitar Show website will be turned into a gateway to participating exhibitors’ online activities. See the guitars you would have seen in Berlin, visit workshops, connect with your favorite builder in a personal chat. Check out the Program page of our website or our official social media outlets to follow the posts made by luthiers from all over the globe.

And, perhaps you might even find that personal ‘Holy Grail’, THE instrument you have been searching for. At The Holy Couch Guitar Show you will have the opportunity to buy directly from the builder. Some might even offer a special discount! In addition, any purchase you make will support a small luthier business, many of which are facing steep economic challenges due to the shut downs.

So come and join us for a fun weekend, get comfy on your couch! Explore and experience all those new guitars and the amazing luthiers up close, in living color! We look forward to seeing you there!

Whether in the studio or on solo gigs, the Nashville session-guitar star holds a lotta cards, with guitars and amps for everything he’s dealt.

Adam Shoenfeld has helped shape the tone of modern country guitar. How? Well, the Nashville-based session star, producer, and frontman has played on hundreds of albums and 45 No. 1 country hits, starting with Jason Aldean’s “Hicktown,” since 2005. Plus, he’s found time for several bands of his own as well as the first studio album under his own name, All the Birds Sing, which drops January 28.

Knowing how to function in different keys is crucial to improvising in any context. One path to fretboard mastery is learning how to move through positions across the neck. Even something as simple as a three-note-per-string major scale can offer loads of options when it’s time to step up and rip. I’m going to outline seven technical sequences, each one focusing on a position of a diatonic major scale. This should provide a fun workout for the fingers and hopefully inspire a few licks of your own.
