Aug 6: Sliding & Slurring Your Chords Part #2: Sliding and slurring chords adds propulsive drive to your strumming style. This class is a follow up to our April class of the same name. We'll review basic slide/slurring techniques and build upon this with moveable chord forms and some classic vaudeville and jug band-era tunes. We'll also talk about how the slur/slide is used when playing melodically in this class as well. Open to anyone who knows their basic chords.
