Put a Little Flash in Your Bluegrass Rhythm
Bored with Boom Chick? In this workshop we will explore bass runs and
fills as a way to get more out of your old familiar three chords. We
will talk, listen to recordings and have you try it out on your own guitar.
We'll also talk about good taste and how not to overdo it. Suitable for
any bluegrass guitarist who can play G, C and D chords with a flatpick.
Ability to read tablature is helpful but not required.
