Live with Guthrie Trapp & Audley Freed!


In this week’s installment of our live-streamed series “Live Dispatch from Home,” ArtistWorks’ cofounder Patricia Butler will host ArtistWorks master guitar instructor Guthrie Trapp and special guest Audley Freed, lead guitarist for the southern hard rock band The Black Crowes, for an afternoon discussion on, “How to Find Your Own Sound.” These two guitar virtuosos will be discussing their unique approaches to developing their own musical sounds and styles, sharing some guidance on how players can embrace outside influence while still expressing themselves musically, and highlighting the importance of focusing on tone as much as note choice and execution when performing. Of course, the in-depth discussion will also be rounded out with some amazing live musical performances and picking. We encourage you to bring your questions and join the conversation. You won’t want to miss this! While you wait, try some free sample guitar lessons from Guthrie, on us!


As one of Nashville’s most sought after session musicians and inventive solo artists, Guthrie Trapp has brought his unique guitar style, hybridizing genres from country to blues, bluegrass, R&B, jazz, Latin, rock, and beyond, to the recordings and productions of some of the most prolific artists performing today. Growing up on the Florida/Alabama coast, Guthrie was exposed to a vast array of musical styles as a young musician and quickly learned to embrace these influences and enfuse them into his own playing. Since then, Guthrie has shared his unique flavor of guitar playing on the recordings and in the performances of artists such as Vince Gill, Dolly Parton, Garth Brooks, John Oates, Billy Gibbons, Alison Krauss, Tony Rice, Earl Scruggs, Randy Travis, and more.
