Molly Tuttle – Blugrass Guitar Soloing (Session 2)

3:00 am
-5:00 pm

| $50

Second session just added!

In this class we will talk about different approaches for learning how to solo and improvise over bluegrass standards. A few  elements we will focus on will be finding melody by ear, adding in embellishments, using scales and arpeggios and incorporating blues. I will show you how I approach soloing to one or two bluegrass songs and give you the tools to solo on your own. I’ll finish up by playing and singing a few songs.
