Flatpicking 102

Instructor: Dave Lidstone

Date: Tuesdays, October 24 - November 28

Time: 7:00 pm

Price: $125, early bird discount is available*

This class is inspired by former students saying “let’s just pick”.  So that’s the plan –we’ll flat-pick fiddle tunes on guitars.  The class is perhaps best suited to former students who had some exposure to tunes from previous classes that I have taught, however new students will be very welcome.  Also, we will add some new tunes to the repertoire.

For  preparation prior to a class I’ll distribute MP3s of a tune and then in class we’ll focus on playing it.  We’ll start each session by ironing out any rough spots to what was distributed and then we’ll pick.  Not too fast but also not absolute beginning.  Along the way I’ll offer some coaching about technique and practice.
