Tuesday Minor: Takin’ it To the Street
Intermediate to Advanced. This workshop will build on the fundamentals to offer insights into creating your own sound. Three main elements of this workshop are: 1) Creating solo acoustic music with just harp, hands, mouth and breath; 2) Contributing to a duo or band by playing lead solos and fills, and accompanying others as a supportive player; and 3) Adding pedals and/or amplification to achieve your own Chicago-style or modern electric blues sound. This session will be illustrated with some listening and participants will have opportunities to play through a few vintage and modern amplifiers and pedals.
