Finding Chords to Slippery Tunes


Saturday

3:30-4:30PM

Location: Maybelle Carter Room 346

Instructor: Mark Simos (fiddle, guitar)

Style: All Styles

Some tunes lend themselves to standard chord progressions. But some of the coolest tunes to play are also the most elusive to accompany: they go right when you think they’ll go left, stay put just when you think they’ll go… In this hands-on, entertaining, and practical session, Mark will draw on lessons of many years accompanying traditional Celtic music, to share some handy tricks of the vamper’s trade you can apply in many styles. He’ll come prepared with a couple of “problem child” tunes, then will ask for a head-scratcher or two from you.
