There Is A Mighty Forest

A mighty forest of great guitar players in northern Minnesota that stretches from the shore of Lake Superior to the headwaters of the Mississippi. Coffee & Guitar brings those great players together to make music, and to share their guitar stories and insights.

Tune in! 

Coffee & Guitar is a weekly hour-long livestream that celebrates and tells the story of the guitar music and guitar players of the Minnesota Northwoods. It streams live every Saturday morning from Darin Bergsven Guitar Studio in Duluth, MN, near Chester Creek and features monthly guest guitarists from across the region.

Northwoods Blues Licks

Look for a new installment each month!

Northwoods Blues Licks is a series of instructional videos, each featuring a tasty blues lick improvised by a past guest.

This series offers detailed insight into local guitar legends’ approaches to a very common musical form: the twelve bar blues and provides for an exchange of melodic ideas among a community of Northwoods guitar players who are deeply interested in each other’s playing and are connected through a shared love for this place, its people, and its music.

Check ’em out! Leave a comment! Let me know about the lick you learned from your favorite local lead guitar legend and how you use it in your playing! Take a quick video of yourself playing the lick and drop a link in the comments!
