Mandolin 3 is a 8 week course that will introduce students to the basics of Blues and Ragtime mandolin in the keys of G, C and D. We will learn from the playing of Yank Rachell, the Memphis Jug Band and more. Topics covered will include the use of Tremelo picking, blue notes and how to mix them with major scales to create the appropriate feel, and chordal backup playing.
Class size is limited to 8 people.
