After a lengthy hiatus, I am happy to be able to start a new series of Zoom workshops focused on playing and learning together. Starting with an appropriately timed Paddy"s Day Tunes/Songs jam session, this first jam will consist of some of the popular songs sung on Paddy's Day as well as some very popular and more well-known traditional, Irish tunes from bands such as The Chieftains, The Bothy Band and De Dannan.
Following each jam session, we will take a look at some of the tunes/songs and break them down to go over different grooves and ideas that fit the music. There is never only a single way to play a tune/song, so the goal is to come up with different ideas to formulate various grooves that complement the music. Participants are also very much encouraged to share/demonstrate their own ideas as well as ask any questions. Creating a discussion is always a great way to share ideas and discover new ways to play a tune.
