Lemme guess: you can make some chords but your left hand is stuck in a rut? Then this is the class for you! We will use easy to sing, straightforward pop and folk standards to get you comfortable moving your right hand. We'll explore different styles of music - waltzes, power pop, & country for instance. And most importantly we will go SLOWLY, taking you through each beat of the rhythm, to demystify the baffling skill of strumming.
Grab your tiny AXE and play around with some classic rock riffs and power pop tunes. This intermediate class will use Maureen's original arrangements of tab and chord charts in an easy to read online format.
In this four-session class aimed at students who have a basic grasp of Scruggs-style playing, we'll discuss how improvisation works, and we'll look at several approaches to "faking" a bluegrass banjo solo, using standard licks, chord positions, and rolls.
