The North Central Florida Blues Society and Lothar Weimann will hold a workshop/seminar about the setup and maintenance of stringed instruments ( guitar, bass, mandolin etc ), sound creation with amps and effects, and maintenance of those. Several instruments and a guitar amp,tools, will be provided, and participants can bring one instrument each plus effect boxes. The set-up, maintenance and diy steps will be explained for participants. You will learn how to create sounds with amps and effects, how to place the instrument’s sound in a band situation and (if asked) different playing styles on guitar (slide etc.) All of that takes place at Sal’s Place (5109 NW 39th Ave, Gainesville, FL) on the 14th at 2 pm and costs $25.00/person. If there are enough good questions the end time may be extended. Support the NCFBS and learn something from a famed luthier and guitarist at the same time!
