BLUEGRASS GUITAR WITH AVRIL SMITH
Thursday, February 21, 2019 9am-noon
We will work together to improve your bluegrass guitar skills, as both a rhythm and lead player. We will learn a few standard songs and tunes, working on rhythm playing ideas to vary strumming patterns and bass runs in ways that best support the song or soloist. We will also practice finding melodies by ear and work on approaches to building melodic solos.
Students should already be able to play a handful of fiddle tunes and bluegrass songs and have some experience playing in a group setting. Please bring a capo, tuner, and a pick.
