Rick Dougherty Guitar Workshop & Concert, The Strum Shop, Saturday, 21. September 2019

September 21st Workshop 5:30pm Concert 7:00pm | $10-$20WorkshopThe guitar workshop will be on developing a solid style for backing up vocals. Solid rhythm pattern, developing a bass pattern and adding in variations with hammer-ons, pull-off, and walks up and down the ball line. This is a very condensed version of what I teach in my book, which, of course, will be on sale at the store. Find out more about the book "Sounding Good on one Guitar" Here: Rick"Rick Dougherty doesn't remember a time when he didn't sing and his beautiful tenor voice has garnered him compliments from Judy Collins, Chet Atkins and Tom Paxton, to name just a few. Rick played piano at home, but in high school he began playing guitar with a particular interest in finger-styles and within a year he was appearing in local coffee-houses in Pasadena. By the time he left the City College he was playing ragtime guitar and had been given a citation by the music department as one of its most promising students.
In 1973 his family moved to San Francisco, and Rick went on the road playing concerts, lounges and coffee-houses across the western states. He picked up bass along the way and studied orchestration and arranging with Dave Wheeler in Columbus, Ohio, while teaching guitar and theory to private students.
But Rick missed the West Coast, so in 1983 he returned to the Bay Area and won a vocal scholarship to Sonoma State University where he became an assistant to the director in the Opera department. He also continued to write arrangements and perform with the jazz ensembles. In 1986 he received the Award for Outstanding Solo Performance from the National Association of Jazz Educators (NAJE) at the Berkeley Collegiate Jazz Festival." Red more at
