Happy Traum Performance + Fingerpicking Masterclass

  • **Workshop doors at 3:30p, begins at 4:00p • Performance doors at 7:00p, begins at 8:00p** Blues and Country Fingerpicking 101: Conquering the Challenge of the Steady Thumb Level 1/2. This class is open to any players, from near-beginners to experienced guitarists, who want to unravel the mysteries of the steady-bass thumb-and-finger styles used by blues and country pickers as well as by innumerable folk singer/songwriters. The necessary coordination of maintaining a rock-steady rhythmic bass while picking syncopated melody notes stymies many learning players, but Happy has had fifty years of experience and, if anyone can get you picking this way, he can. At least one song will be taught, along with exercises and pointers to improve your playing skills. Class prerequisite: Ability to play and change chords smoothly in the basic positions. Tickets $20 Advance ,$17 Friends, $23 Day of Show, $40 Workshop, $50 Workshop & Show.
