About the Workshop:
Ned Evett has been a clinician for Peavey Guitars and Amps, Fernandes Guitars, and Line6 electronics. His Hermit festival guitar clinic covers the basic principles of fretless slide guitar, and a demonstration of some of his popular techniques for the instrument. These include glass slide-slide capos, alternate tunings, and mechanical metronome techniques for the right hand.
Ned Evett was born in Nashville, Tennessee. A son of a university English professor and an opera singer mother, Evett excelled at music; first playing the ukulele at the age of 11, progressing to classical guitar, and giving his first professional performance at the age of 16. He then won a classical guitar scholarship, but then dropped out before graduating to play in rock bands across the country.
In 2003, Evett won the North American Rock Guitar Competition, and in 2004, PBS Television broadcast a documentary about the competition titled driven to Play. He is the inventor of the glass-necked fretless guitar.
