Defying Conventions: Unusual and Eccentric Autoharp Techniques – Virtual Online Workshop
Saturday, March 20, 2021 @ 4:30 pm - 6:00 pm$50
Skill level: Intermediate – Advanced
I’m a bit of an odd-ball in the autoharp community: I never use fingerpicks. I play with bare fingernails or a flatpick, and my style of chromatic autoharp playing involves the use open-chording tricks that are usually reserved for the diatonic autoharp. In this workshop, I’ll share these uncommon but nevertheless effective techniques. If you’re an intermediate-level player ready to go beyond pinching and plucking, this workshop will certainly broaden your musical horizons. The ability to read music is not necessary. Participants need a tuned chromatic autoharp, fingers picks, and a flatpick. Workshop handouts are provided in the keys of Dm, F and G.
