Learn from renowned blues guitarist

Bonnie Raitt calls him “Funky and authentic.” In addition to touring regularly with Marcia Ball, Mighty Mike Schermer has become the go-to guitar player for Elvin Bishop, Maria Muldaur, Raitt, Charlie Musselwhite and many more.
Mighty Mike will be sharing his skills at an “Essential Grooves” clinic on July 20 at 6:30 p.m. at the nonprofit Tahoe Truckee School of Music. “Screaming leads and fancy licks are great, but the bottom line is if you can’t play good rhythm you can’t play a good lead,” he says. “In this clinic, we cover nearly every rhythmic pattern, motif and chord sequence essential to performing blues music, playing in blues bands and sitting in at jams.” | Register info@tahoemusic.net or tahoemusic.net
