The first Bluegrass Slow Jam of the 2012-2013 school year will take place at the school on Friday, 19 October, 6.30 - 8 pm.
Bluegrass Slow Jams are open to anyone who wants experience playing and singing bluegrass standards at a moderately slow tempo and in a supportive, educational and fun jam setting. The primary emphasis is on participants playing and hearing basic chord changes cleanly and in time. We will also work on arrangements of the selected material, and participants will learn how to begin a song, how to order solos, how to end a song, and how to communicate with the other musicians.
Both New School and external students/players are welcome!
See Bluegrass Slow Jams for more information, as well as downloadable lyrics and chords of songs we will work on (in pdf format).
