Truefire Peter Mulvey String Traveler

Truefire Peter Mulvey String Traveler

Peter Mulvey has been a songwriter, road-dog, raconteur, accomplished guitarist, passionate educator, and almost-poet since before he can remember. Eighteen records, one illustrated book, thousands of live performances, a TEDx talk, opening for luminaries such as Ani DiFranco, Emmylou Harris, and Chuck Prophet, appearances on NPR, emceeing festivals, hosting his own boutique festival… Mulvey's impressive pedigree is a mile long.

We're thrilled to welcome Peter to the family with his first TrueFire course, String Traveler. You will likewise be thrilled as you travel his enlightening curriculum with guitar and pen in hand.

”I've been playing guitar, writing songs, and taking those songs out on the road, in front of live audiences, for over 30 years. Over that time, I've studied my mentors, my colleagues, and the work of a lot of the iconic practitioners of this art form.

Whether you're a working singer-songwriter, an aspiring singer-songwriter, or a guitar soloist or accompanist -- we all want to put ourselves in service of the song.

Dedicating myself to that process has given me great joy and occasional mortification and now I hope that this course will pass on to you both that joy and perhaps even some occasional mortification.”

Peter will guide your exploration through five original song studies. For each, he will first perform the song, and then use that performance as a springboard for a series of lessons focused on many of his favorite guitar techniques, creative harmonic approaches, lyric writing, and storytelling concepts.
