Beyond G, C & D: Chromatic Chord Progressions on the Autoharp – Virtual Online Workshop
Saturday, March 20, 2021 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm$50
Skill level: Intermediate
Although the chromatic autoharp has a twelve-note scale, many of the songs we play on the instrument use only the seven-note diatonic scale (do-re-mi-fa-so-la-ti). Are you ready to move beyond playing “1-4-5” songs with the same three and four chords? This workshop explores melodies with decidedly chromatic chord progressions that use the 12-note chromatic scale, including: Hit the Road, Jack, Sixteen Tons, Greensleeves, House of the Rising Run, and Freight Train. The ability to read music is not necessary. Participants need a tuned chromatic autoharp (no diatonic autoharps, please) and picks. Workshop handouts are provided in the keys of Dm and C.
