W#1. GUITAR TECHNIQUE
Wim has a very simple trick that will give you the possibility to achieve anything on the guitar! With this and a lot of dedication he developed his unique Wimpicking technique: playing multiple parts at the same time on the guitar. Motorically everything is achievable. It has to do with a focus similar to that in Kung Fu. In this workshop you will get technical examples to practice and you will lay the foundation for a better practice strategy.

W#2. IMPROVISATION
Did you always want to improvise over chords as free as a bird? In this workshop Wim focusses on gypsy, blues and jazz improvisation. You will all get the chance to play solo's (no matter your level, even the absolute beginners will get the hang of it!). You will get examples, improve your chord and scale knowledge, If you want to prepare you can go to this website that Wim made to learn improvising: www.backingtrackmachine.com

W#3. COMPOSITION
Want to create your own music? In this workshop you will do exactly that! It seems like magic, but here you will learn real strategies that help you be creative and use effective structures to improve your own music. It's appreciated if you bring your own music and ideas, but if you're completely new to this, that's fine too. You will start with the absolute basics and you will also hear the master tricks of composition.
