Introducing The Melbourne Guitar Lab. Their next workshop is titled 'COMPOSING FOR FINGERSTYLE GUITAR'.
Do you love the sound of acoustic guitar but feel ill equipped to compose your own music? Are you in need of tools to assist in developing your ideas beyond a good starting point? Do you feel as though your composing is in a rut or has plateaued out? Does everything you write sound the same?
Topics covered at this workshop will include:
- Employing concepts to generate ideas and ignite creativity - Construct and develop melody - Altered tunings - How to develop an effective compositional process - Building an arrangement from the ground up
Saturday, April 16th from 10am-1pm. The Yellow Room, Abbotsford Convent 1 St Heliers St, Abbotsford.

Introducing the brand new Martin DR Centennial. Released to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the dreadnought, the DR Centennial is one hell of a limited edition guitar.
The first thing you'll notice is the natural satin finish—a rarity for a Martin as highly spec'd as this one. Those specs include an Adirondack Spruce top with VTS, Indian Rosewood back and sides, Mahogany neck, Rosewood fretboard and forward-shifted 'scalloped X' bracing. Antique white binding and open geared butterbean tuners set this model off beautifully.
This guitar is an absolute cannon. It is extremely limited and there will only be a handful coming in to the country. Why not see out the 100th year of the dreadnought in style?! $3,249.
Santa just dropped in when nobody was looking and left us with a dozen new Martins. There's a couple of very cool new models in here too. All will be revealed!!
Another year gone...another Acoustic Centre/Bass Centre Christmas party. They may get tamer each year as we age but the quality of food and drink only gets better. Huge thanks to Guy and Mick for not only wining & dining us in style last night, but for being such bloody cool blokes to work for year round. Until next year!
