The Lockdown Sessions
Calling All Fiddlers (Improvers to Intermediate Level)
For the next 5 weeks (Wednesday 8th-29th July) Finlay will be offering a block of lessons called ‘The Lockdown Sessions’
These lessons will be from 7.30 - 8.30pm using the Zoom online platform.
These will be an introduction to new sets to be added to the Slow Jam (GFW Session Tunes)
These sets will be three tunes to be played as a listening set, slow, medium and fast. You will get the chance to
- learn some new and interesting tunes
- try different keys
- link different types of tune (air, march, strathspey, jig, reel etc)
- practise transitions
These sets will become a part of the regular repertoire of the Slow Jam so there will always be a place to play these sets together.
