Thompson says he'll also be talking about "what I see as the possibilities of the guitar as a solo instrument, and as an instrument accompanying songwriters," he adds. "It's a combined songwriting/guitar-playing camp, and I'm interested in how people accompany themselves as songwriters with the guitar, and its potential as an accompanying instrument."
