In this class we play and sing great folk tunes, out of an ever-expanding book of songs. Learning focuses on fingerpicking, bass runs, chord inversions and grace notes, to add new colours to arrangements.
The class book now encompasses more than 50 tunes by writers such as Pete Seeger, Bob Dylan, Elizabeth Cotten, Gordon Lightfoot, Ian & Sylvia Tyson, Joni Mitchell, Steve Goodman, Townes Van Zandt, Ry Cooder, James Taylor, Greg Brown and many more. New tunes are added each term. Class members are encouraged to bring tunes they want to learn, or already love to play.
If you enjoy playing and singing great tunes in a group setting, this one is for you. In this class we’ve had guitarists, pianists, ukesters, banjolelers, mandolinstas and those who just like to sing and harmonize. It’s a relaxing, friendly and folky evening.
