UKULELE WORKSHOP: 18:45 – 20:00
(Doors Open 18:30)
Introduction to Fingerpicking the Blues

Level: You are comfortable with first position chords able to keep in time changing between them.

Working in GCEA tuning, Del will teach a song that incorporates

  • blues licks
  • rhythmic effects
  • unusual chord changes
  • picking techniques.

Get your right hand picking on a great old Papa Charlie Jackson ragtime blues, “Mama Don’t You Think I Know”.

The workshop will give you an introduction to right hand fingerpicking and to what makes a melody “blue”.

You will learn a song (by ear – no tab).
