In this highlight, we feature our legendary country guitar teacher Guthrie Trapp!
Who is Guthrie Trapp?
Guthrie grew up along the Gulf Coast in Florida, and was influenced at an early age by all the Southern musicians around him. In 2001 Guthrie moved to Nashville, and he soon found himself playing guitar in sessions with great musicians including Willie Weeks, Garth Brooks, and many more. He was a member of Jerry Douglas’ band for 5 years, and before that worked closely with Patty Loveless - including on the Grammy® winning album Mountain Soul II.
Guthrie released his first solo album called Pick Peace in 2012 as a way to showcase his signature guitar playing. His versatile playing reflects his love for all kinds of music while staying true to his country roots.
What will you learn in his school?
Guthrie Trapp has taken everything he knows about playing country guitar and created a comprehensive video library that includes hundreds of online lessons. These lessons will take you from beginner all the way to expert - and there's truly something for everyone. You’ll start with some picking patterns and basic pulls offs, and then progress into advanced double stops and soloing on songs like “Momma Tried”.
What ultimately sets these lessons apart from other online offerings however, is the ability to submit a video using the ArtistWorks Video Exchange® learning platform. Guthrie reviews each submission and records a video response with feedback on how you're doing and tips for how to improve. Yes, Guthrie Trapp himself will respond to you!
Guthrie Trapp has been busy, and continues this year with a packed schedule! He plays every Wednesday night at "The ACME Nashville" in a musical live radio variety show called "Trapped Above Ground", the next shows are on March 22nd, and March 29th - make sure to check it out! Guthrie has also been busy starting the process of making a new record which he'll record this summer. Even with his busy schedule Guthrie always finds time to record responses to the Video Exchange® questions his students send in. Guthrie really cares about his students and would love for you to come join him!
