Learn to play and sing classics of the Blues repertoire, from the Country Blues of Mississippi to urban Chicago styles. A colour of many shades, Blues also lends a hip vibe to Country, Gospel, can be felt in Ragtime early Jazz songs and even contemporary pop. So expect some classics, but also some fun & humorous hidden gems.In a relaxed and playful manner, we will  look at various way to learn a song, what it takes to perform it, and how to get there. Elements of  Finger-style, Rhythm, Slide and basic Blues theory will sharpen your skills and understanding of both the guitar and the Blues. We will aim for one song per week.  

 

Requirements: A basic knowledge of chords and TAB reading would be welcome. Try not to miss the first class!

 

Optional: $10 fee for PDF’s and MP3s to be paid directly to the instructor.
