Folk & Appalachian Old Time Music - Fiddle & Guitar

Course Code: ARTS2667

Old-time is the pre-bluegrass folk music of the Appalachian Mountains. This comprehensive course will focus on Appalachian-style fiddle and guitar. The emphasis will be on bowing techniques, demystifying some of the more elusive hidden pulses and nuances within the style. On guitar, learn picking patterns typical to the genre along with the necessary chords. The course will culminate in a fun and lively pairing with Sam Allison's Clawhammer banjo and string-bass class. This will be an exciting supplement that will provide a great space for group learning of old-time music! An excellent opportunity for musicians to collaborate and explore the concept of "string-band" music and the important roles of each instrument in an integrated, friendly and all-inclusive setting. This course is suitable for the strong beginner or intermediate musician.
