Would you like to learn your favorite Joan Baez and Bob Dylan songs, play guitar like Tony Rice and Doc Watson, or go to crazy banjo territory with Earl Scruggs and Bela Fleck?

Folk and Bluegrass are super fun to play. 

Here some concepts we will work on:

  • Fingerpicking

  • Phrasing

  • Learning and memorizing licks from the masters

  • Improvising 

  • Memorizing tunes

  • Choosing finger picks (for banjo) and thumb picks

  • Playing with metronome

  • Analysis of major, minor, blues, pentatonic scales and creative use of them

  • Harp like effect

  • Build your repertoire

  • (If you want to!) practicing with vocal parts harmonies

 

Here, a couple of tunes with me at the banjo.
