Beginning/Intermediate Irish/Celtic Guitar
Monday, September 21, 2020, 7:00 PM until 8:00 PM
Registration is not Required
Artichoke Community Music online class led by Zac Leger, $125 for six classes.
This class will look at the bedrock fundamentals of accompanying the traditional music of Ireland and the British Isles. You will learn to back reels, jigs, slip jigs, hornpipes and polkas. We will look at alternate tunings, multiple styles of strumming, picking patterns, rhythm and syncopation, hand dampening techniques and dynamics, moving bass lines, modal chords, counter-point and much more. Also useful for singer/songwriters, Old-Timey/Folk musicians or those who just want to try something new on the guitar! We will study some of the history of the guitar in traditional music and discuss some of the techniques these players have innovated. We will also discuss the etiquette of when and at what times the guitar is applicable in traditional music and how to behave in Irish/Celtic trad sessions as a guitarist.
