Songwriters often find themselves stuck in a creative rut playing the same old chords and patterns. How do you free yourself from traditional forms? How do you break out of the box? How can you expand your palette of musical ideas? For all those answers and mega doses of inspiration, dig deep into Christie Lenée’s Creative Fingerstyle Guitar for Songwriters.
Combining guitar virtuosity, lyrical storytelling, and a passion for positivity, Christie Lenée leaves her audiences feeling inspired. “She's got unparalleled skill on the guitar, songs that go straight to the heart, plus an immediate and deep connection with the audience. She wowed everybody!”
2017 International Fingerstyle Guitar Champion Christie Lenée views the guitar as an entire spectrum of musical possibilities. Rooted from the simplicity of seeing the guitar first as a tool for self-expression, she says that one of the greatest skills to develop as a musician is to be able to "play what you hear" and speak music as a language. "To feel relaxed, fluid and connected to the instrument is like breathing... and THAT is when the magic happens."
Christie's masterful guitar work and profound instrumental compositions are well described as 'Michael Hedges meets Joni Mitchell and Dave Matthews.’ She is also a passionate educator and we’re very excited to welcome Christie to the family with her first TrueFire course, Creative Fingerstyle Guitar for Songwriters.
Christie will share creative insights about the guitar beginning at fundamentals of holding the instrument, how to play completely relaxed with minimal effort, and how to translate musical expressions through our hands. Other concepts include songwriting and composition approaches, opening up the guitar neck, right-hand fingerpicking patterns with creative examples, open tunings and variations, using harmonics and low drones, creating memorable guitar riffs, and an intro to rhythmic guitar slapping and tapping.
