I started EDGE (Eliane Delage Guitar Ensemble in 2013, an all-inclusive group of guitar players of all background and skill levels. I wanted to provide a platform where musicians can learn, grow, and feel confident within a positive environment, and since then it has served as a welcoming hub for hundreds of musicians including guest singers, saxophonists, drummers, ukulele players… and of course, guitarists and bassists!
EDGE performs seasonally at awesome NYC venues.
Guitar players of ALL LEVELS are welcome. Yes, you can join if you're a total beginner!
You only need to have a basic knowledge of guitar, even if you know just a few chords, you can totally join!)
Bass players, Ukulele Players and Singers are welcome.

Guitar Technique That Will Make You Cry is based on how hard I used to practice individual drills to perfection, I practiced them to my breaking point where I felt like crying but wouldn't give up 'til I got them right! This workshop focuses on essential guitar techniques that any player of any style should master; Sliding, Hammer Ons, Pull Offs, Finger Training Warm Ups, Bending, Sequences, Harmonics, Tapping, etc.
Acoustic Blues Series is a workshop based on the Pentatonic scale and all different was to practice them, it covers the 5 boxes and unique licks for each one of them as well as a group jam where you have the chance to use them right away.
