In this 1 hour and 15 minute class Russ will share backup insights he's learned from playing with bluegrass superstar Ricky Skaggs. You'll learn and receive tab for the backup to two songs he performs with Kentucky Thunder. The final 15 minutes will be dedicated to a Q&A.
There's so much crossover with Irish and Bluegrass fiddle music that it's hard to keep track! In this class you'll receive tab for some of the essential crossover tunes.
Melodic vs. Single String? Can we fit some Scruggs style in the mix? What about more traditional Irish techniques? You'll learn how to combine different styles to develop your own sound when arranging.
1. Know the melody by heart (meaning you can sing it all the way through).
2. Work through it on your instrument in multiple positions.
3. Add in variations (triplets, trills, style changes, etc.)
