Event description
In this workshop, Erin teaches delta blues finger-style songs that highlight what she calls “Pickin’ and Poppin’”.

About this Event

Students will learn to add some percussiveness to their playing by learning the “Poppin’” thumb technique, snapping the lower strings to give an extra pop, while “Pickin’” out the melodic lines. Erin will break songs down and help each student adapt the technique to their own playing style.

This class is for beginning to intermediate finger-style guitar players. Resources will be provided for students including tabs and lyric sheets. Students should bring along a guitar and be ready to play!

Songs (depending on students' needs we can choose one or two):

  • TOMMY JOHNSON "Big Road Blues" (drop D tuning)
  • MISSISSIPPI JOHN HURT "Casey Jones" (regular tuning, key of G)
  • GEESHIE WILEY "Pick Poor Robin Clean" (regular tuning, key of A)
  • LUCILLE BOGAN "I Hate That Train Called the M&O" (regular tuning, key of E)

Class size is limited, so don't wait to reserve your spot - you don't want to miss this exciting opportunity!
