Mary Halvorson Guitar Style – Composing, Improvising and Creative Approaches

I’m a huge fan of Mary Halvorson’s work and immense creative output. She’s one of the musicians that I would love to catch live in concert in the near future. So far I haven’t managed to catch her live or take a lesson with her yet.

This post (2nd in a series featuring different guitarists, first one on Nile Rodgers here) collects some of the most interesting music, interviews, lessons, articles and podcasts that I’ve found on her work. If you’re a fan or curious about her music or approach to music, I hope this post will help you find some new ideas. I will be going through these as well.

Have fun.
