Somebody gave me this 50+ minute MP3 of Trey Anastasio giving a guitar Clinic at the National Guitar Summer Workshop in 1993. I know for a fact that Trey was a student there at one point. I actually attended the workshop for 3 sessions, and taught there for 4 years. It was one of the most rewarding and intellectually stimulating experiences I have ever had. I got to play with and learn from some of the greatest musicians of our time! I highly recommend the program to anyone whose serious about guitar.
Anyway, I gave the clinic a quick listen and here are some of the main points Trey touches upon:
*Group Improvisation Exercises
*The creation and origins of “Stash”
*The Influence of Ted Dunbar
* Tension and release in simple improvisation
* His experiences studying composition with Ernie Stires
