Class Description

Banjo III: Learn to play Riley’s version of Undone In Sorrow, from Ola Belle Reed. We’ll focus on the ‘F’ Tuning (fDGCD). This tuning is great for old tunes, new tunes and really good if you’re a singer. This tuning requires we play out of chord shapes, rather than being tuned in an open tuning like ‘G’. Part of our workshop will be learning the 4 chord shapes we’ll need, and how to locate the melody within them. We’ll also get into some interesting right hand patterns, using lots of drop thumbs, and we’ll work on keeping track of where we are in the basic rhythm, within the melody, which helps improve all your playing.
