Instructor: Matt Shipman
Backing up tunes in a session or in a band can really help lift the music. In this workshop we will work on skills to help us be a better backer of tunes. We will go over right hand technique in various time signatures such as 6/8, 9/8, 4/4 and waltz time.
We will also go over some tips and tricks for backing tunes that you may not even know, which happens to us all while playing at sessions and other situations. The focus will also be on listening and ear training. Honing in on these skills will help you be the kind of tune backer that people will look forward to playing with at sessions, ensembles and bands in your community and wherever you may go.
Other string instruments such as mandolin, octave mandolin and bouzouki are also welcome!
