DADGAD tuning is used widely throughout Celtic and other world music, and is known for powerful accompaniment for dances, tunes, and compelling textures for vocal accompaniment. New approaches will be discussed for right-hand and picking technique, left-hand chords, harmonies, and substitutions. Over the course of the workshop, we will strengthen our knowledge of the fret board while building an array of right-hand rhythmic possibilities. Using polyrhythms and syncopation, we will explore ways to be an invaluable addition to any musical setting. By the end of class, we will have explored techniques to accompany tunes on the fly, and give new life to the music you already play. Level: Intermediate/Advanced
