Spencer Bohren approaches the lapsteel guitar as a solo instrument to
accompany his uniquely atmospheric songs and vocals. In his hands, the
lapsteel conjures almost painterly soundscapes that touch his audience
deeply. Learn how he separates the open strings from those played with the
slide bar to create his signature sparse backdrop to support vocals. Study
tunings he typically uses, tricks and traps with the slide bar, and his
renowned "less is more" philosophy. He will cover blues, gospel, writing, and
soloing on the lapsteel. Bring an acoustic or electric guitar set up to play
lap style, a solid steel bar and your questions.
