Larry Brown

acoustic guitar

Berklee College of Music: Instrumental Performance (Guitar) with a minor in Harmony and Arranging. Graduate studies at George Mason University included composition, orchestration, and classical guitar.
Born and raised in Chicago, Larry has had a long career as lead guitarist for a variety of groups. Heavily influenced by Dave van Ronk, John Fahey, and Martin Simpson, Larry embarked upon a solo career as a composer and performer on the acoustic guitar fifteen years ago. He believes that the most important thing to do is to get a student playing something genuine immediately. He says “He feels it is important to get the picking hand fingers engaged through fingerstyle arrangements.” This is both the foundation of good acoustic playing as well as being an important skill for those who choose to transition to electric guitar. Larry teaches with an approach he has designed based on his experience in the real world of playing and theory lessons learned from great teachers both privately and at Berklee.Larry also teaches altered tunings on the acoustic guitar and has an instructional video on playing in open D tuning as an online lesson. He has been a guest artist with Alasdair Fraser, Michael Manring, Caroline Herring, Tim Thompson, and Ken Bonfield among others.
