Knowledge of basic chord shapes and simple melodies.
In this course we will explore moveable chord shapes, some common bluegrass and old time melodies and how to take your backup and lead playing to the next level. We will cover right and left hand techniques and how to apply those to your existing repertoire. Tunes will be selected based on class requests and prior knowledge. We will focus on learning chord progressions and tunes by ear. Music and TAB with chords, along with video and audio recording, will be available at the end of the course.
