Level: Intermediate

A big question that comes up about improvising or arranging in the bluegrass style is, “Do I just use ONE scale the whole time, or do I play something different for each chord?”. Most bluegrass musicians do follow the chord progression as they move through licks and phrases. Learning to play like this is one of the big steps to becoming a good bluegrass guitarist.

“Big Sandy River” is the perfect song to start learning to create musical lines that follow the chord changes. We’re going to learn a simple version of the melody, and then leave it behind to create our own version of the song that you can play by yourself, in a jam or even on stage.

You’ll receive a PDF tab for both the basic melody, and any variations we come up with together in class, worksheets to practice the ideas we discuss, and access to the video lesson so you can watch the class again later.

[The day before the workshop is scheduled you will receive a Zoom link to access the call. Check your spam folder, we are not responsible for lost emails.]
