The Handmade Music School presents an advanced beginner/intermediate workshop with Shay Garriock on Sunday, February 17, 2019 from 11:00am-1:00pm. Cost is $30.

This workshop is for those who already play several tunes and have a good grasp on timing, bow control, and intonation. I will introduce one or two tunes from the Virginia Blue Ridge that incorporate more intermediate bowing and noting. To help you dress up some of your existing tunes, we will cover common Old Time bowing techniques such as circle (both directions), slurring across strings, and figure eight pattern. I’ll also cover more advanced noting techniques such as sliding and chording. Finally, I will introduce ways to create dynamics and expression into your bowing. Expect at least one tune in the Key of G, standard tuning.
