Bring the music of the Grateful Dead to life on your guitar in this workshop based on the best-selling Homespun video series Learn Seven Classic Grateful Dead Songs for Acoustic Guitar. Jeffrey shows you not only how to play the chords and create powerful grooves behind your singing on songs like “Friend of the Devil,” “New Speedway Boogie,” “Althea,” and “Casey Jones,” but also how to add cool embellishments and lead breaks inspired by the Dead’s live and studio performances.


The specific songs covered depend on the interests of the group.

Jeffrey Pepper Rodgers, the founding editor of Acoustic Guitar magazine, interviewed both Jerry Garcia and Bob Weir in depth about their guitar and songwriting styles, and draws on insights from those conversations to capture the soul of these timeless songs. He will be performing at Passim on August 1 in a Jerry Garcia 75th Birthday Tribute, along with Celia Woodsmith, Ryan Fitzsimmons, Greg Klyma, and Spotted Tiger.
