When you’re playing guitar behind vocals, you can do so much more than simply strum the chords and keep the time. In this workshop based on Jeffrey’s new Acoustic Guitar book/video series Beyond Strumming (available in April as a book or downloadable guide, complete with notation and video instruction!), you’ll learn how to add variety and power to your accompaniment with such techniques as partial chords, chord embellishments, bass lines, muting, string percussion, cross-picking, alternate tunings, and partial capos.

Jeffrey is the founding editor of Acoustic Guitar magazine and author of The Complete Singer-Songwriter and the video series Learn Seven Grateful Dead Classics for Acoustic Guitar.

"A great resource for people looking to play songs in new ways, Beyond Strumming provides guitarists with a useful toolbox of accompaniment techniques in a methodical and clear format." —Chris Eldridge

You don’t need to be a virtuoso to play interesting guitar parts or accompany your songs in a more compelling way. I spent years dead reckoning my way to some of these approaches that Jeffrey lays out clearly in these pages. I wish this book had existed when I was learning how to play guitar.” —Mark Erelli

Jeffrey is a great guitar player. Sensitive and strong, and makes it look deceptively easy.”—Dan Bern
