9/24 Class Summary
We continued working on the melody to Golden Slippers and worked on our guitar back-up skills. Refer to last week’s class summary for tab and audio for Golden Slippers.
-Listening for “Potatoes”. When playing with a fiddler, listen to how the fiddler starts the tune in order to determine the groove and the tempo.
When practicing your Boom-Chuck, alternate the “Boom” between the string with the bass note and the string next door.
Example: For a D chord a boom chuck with an Alternating Bass would be
Pluck 4th string (D), STRUM
Pluck the 5th string (A), STRUM
-Work on getting the A part to Golden Slippers in-time and up-to-speed.
-Work on practicing the Alternating Bass when we Boom-Chuck.
