An event every week that begins at 7:00 pm on Thursday, happening 6 times

NY United States

with Ron Gordon for 6 weeks

Thursdays: Jan. 14, 21, 28, Feb. 4, 11, 18
7 – 8:15 pm

This 6 week class will help the beginning guitar player get to the next step in strumming and bass-pick right hand technique, and introduce the first stages of finger picking. We’ll learn about leading and alternating basses,and how to apply this in using both a flat pick and a thumb pick. As we proceed through the common keys/chord shapes, we’ll sing some great songs along the way. Knowledge of the basic chords “down the neck” and a decent wi-fi connection will be needed (for using Skype). Song sheets, playing guides, and sound files will be emailed ahead of each session.

For more information contact Ron at 518-372-4172 or rgukeboy@gmail.com.

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 7:00 pm on Tuesday, happening 6 times

with Hilary Schrauf for 6 weeks

Tuesday: Jan. 26, Feb. 2, 9, 16, 23, March 2
7 – 8:15 pm

This class assumes moderate previous experience with the fiddle (know the names of the notes and strings; know how to hold the bow), and little to moderate experience with Irish traditional music. We’ll have fun digging in to the different types of Irish tunes (jigs, reels, hornpipes, etc.) — and maybe a composition or two — while exploring what makes them sound Irish. Some bowing, slurring, ornamentation, and variations will be taught. Sound files, sheet music and links to other resources will be provided. Reading sheet music is not a requirement.
