I was so excited to get to meet Craig Chee and Sarah Maisel this past weekend. Craig’s workshop was a lot of fun and he shared some strumming and rhythmic techniques that he uses in his unique and exciting playing style. Sarah taught some classic blues and jazz progressions and some her favorite variations and chord shapes that she uses in her own music.
In the evening concert following the workshops, both artists put on incredible shows. Both performances included covers, collaborations, and originals and really showcased how talented Craig and Sarah are on stage. The highlight for me was their collaboration of “More Than Words”, a song that brought a lot of memories and a few tears (I got to admit) when they sang it together.
Afterwards I got to chat with them a bit and get some autographed copies of their albums. They were both really down to earth people that are passionate about their craft. The next couple of months is very busy for these two, please check them out and support if you can.
