2011 NATIONAL GUITAR WORKSHOP BASS SEMINARS

Discussion in 'Ask David Overthrow' started by Dave Overthrow, May 8, 2011.


  1. I thought I would post the National Guitar Workshop Bass Seminars that I will be teaching this summer. I am looking forward to all of them, especially the Montana Crown of the Continent Guitar Festival.

    If you have any questions about any of these seminars fell free to drop a note.
