Building simple instruments using guitar pedals, John Hegre Duration – depends on the local conditions, how long we are there and how much time the participants want to put into it. A general good length for a work session is frm 2 – 4 hours I guess. I am open for anything.

Need electricity, soldering iron, screwdrivers, clippers, some sort of amplification, any sort of amplification and we take it from there. The bigger and more powerful amplification/guitaramp/PA – the more fun! This is a personal preference, quiet is more challenging and also much fun. Anything participants need to bring to the workshop? One cheap/crappy/broken electric guitar they are not afraid to modify. It is also possible to modify more “fine” instruments/guitars but my main focus will be in the cheap end of the scale and the possibilities there. Participants may also bring other acoustic instruments/objects for modification.
