Backing Up Jigs, Reels and Waltzes



Location: R7

Instructor: Bethany Waickman (guitar) & Ellery Klein (fiddle)

Style: Canadian Cape Breton Irish New England Scandinavian Scottish Shetland

We'll look at a few different right hand strumming/rhythm options for backing up jigs, reels, and waltzes. Although Bethany plays open-tuned (DADGAD) guitar, the workshop is open to guitars, mandolins, ukes, and anyone looking to play rhythm behind fiddle tunes. Right hand focus, so chording will be secondary. Bethany and Ellery play together in Fódhla (see their latest CD in the FH store).
