Rock and Beyond with Duane Denison

duane denison rock guitar and beyond

Duane Denison, one of Spin Magazine's Top 100 Guitarists of All Time, is teaching online interactive master classes.

Rock and Beyond is a 3 session workshop where Duane will show how to incorporate non-rock styles into rock music -- including reggae, jazz, Latin, and Denison's own work. The student participants will be encouraged to contribute and play their own compositions in the 3rd session. 

About Duane Denison

The classically trained Denison has played warped jazz-rock with Firewater, cool jazz with the Denison-Kimball Trio, experimental alt-metal with Tomahawk, rockabilly punk with Th' Legendary Shack Shakers, and outlaw country with Hank Williams III. But the angular, metallic sheets of noise that Denison unleashed with the Jesus Lizard are what he'll ultimately be remembered and revered for. Tightly controlled yet capable of ripping and tearing like a runaway chainsaw, Denison's riffs influenced an entire generation of post-hardcore guitarists, including the burgeoning wave of noise-punkers like the Men and Roomrunner.

Students of Past Group Sessions Say:

5 thumbs up for online guitar lessons with Duane Denison (The Jesus Lizard, Tomahawk). A lot of great information in a short amount of time, with a good balance of songs, theory, and exercises - well prepared. Friendly guy - no ego trips and easy to work with. Looking forward to future sessions.
