Swing Mandolin with Tom Cunningham
Add some swing to your mandolin playing! Swing is an important part of bluegrass, blues, rockabilly and rock and roll. We'll explore techniques to help turn you into a swing mandolin player. Using material from artists like Django Reinhardt, the David Grisman quintet, and American swing players from the 30's and 40's, we'll develop rhythmic, improvisational and chordal approaches to making your music swing.
Students should have completed our mandolin 3 class or have the ability to play several fiddle tunes close to full tempo and have mastery of mandolin chop chords.
Open to all, ages 11 through Adult
