Rick Washbrook Guitar Lessons Newmarket How To Play Guitar

I studied with Rick Washbrook. Many years later I still incorporate a lot of the techniques he showed me. He taught me to listen to the essence of each chord I learned.

For example, He made me more aware of arranging a little melody lines that can connect one chord to the next. This has become very valuable in my composing, and playing.

Rick Washbrook helped me discover the same chord but in other positions, and inversions up and down the neck of the guitar. For example: playing the 3rd note as the bass note rather than the root note.

He helped me find the special notes within chords that make that particular chord sound so unique, and the movement of a note or just staying on the same note when changing chords. This has really opened my eyes to understanding good voice leading.

He emphasized the importance of exploring new possibilities, of not getting caught in the same small box of playing. He has so many ways of looking out of the box.

For example; when learning a new song or piece of music you not only learn the piece, but to change it up a little and make it your own by improvising and utilizing your own imagination to take the song somewhere else, and still keeping to the integrity of the song.

Playing finger style guitar teaches us to play 2 or 3 parts simultaneously. Washbrook is a genius at this. He shed a lot of light on this topic for me.

Rick taught me to listen, and how to bring out the part of me I knew was there, but didn’t know how to reach.

Philosophically, we talked about the spiritual journey that each of us are on. I always felt we were on the same quest together to learn guitar.

Rick Washbrook is one of the best guitarists in North America. He is humble and never has shown an ego about his talent, or acted like he is the “amazing guitarist.” I admire that about him. Musicians from all around love jamming with Rick, laughing and being around him.

When I listen to some of the music that Rick Washbrook brings through, I am truly inspired for I recognize through Washbrook that we can, break on through to the other side. Rick Washbrook transcends when he performs.

We reach a point when it is not so much playing the guitar, but we are the music. Music of itself, from a higher level, expresses It self through us.

I believe that subconsciously, we all strive for this. To me, Rick Washbrook is one of those musicians who has already achieved it, and through his example, he inspires the rest of us to keep going.

In my moments of practice and striving that somehow I feel the closest to being myself, my true self.

So…. I say to you Rick…thanks for being you, and inspiring me to keep playing guitar and to have a playful attitude about living life.
