Clawhammer Banjo - Kentucky Tunes
Kentucky Banjo Tunes with Carla Gover
This class will focus on the banjo/fiddle tunes of East Kentucky. We’ll explore some of the most popular jam tunes from the mountains, as well as some songs in modal tunings. We will also learn a few songs that can be sung with the banjo.
This class emphasizes learning by ear, so we will not be working from tab or written music. Instead, we’ll stretch our brains to learn in the good old-fashioned way, focusing on soulfulness and feel rather than perfection.
This class will be best for intermediate students and up, although ambitious advanced beginners are welcome to join in.
We will explore:
-modal tunings (G modal, C modal, and possibly others)
