Electric Guitar Course: Ted Lynch (blues guitarist) will be taking you through the music of the legendary and late blues master B.B. King. Sadly Mr. King passed away this month14th May and we thought it a fitting tribute to his legacy to introduce his music to you. Ted will take you through the fundamentals of the blues structure and demonstrate how to improvise over a chord progression. Two of BB King's popular tracks will be covered and all participants will have the opportunity to perform these on stage with a full band at the Gala Concert on Sunday night.
