Honing Your Chops: Tips and Tricks for Picking Melodies on the Autoharp – Virtual Online Workshop
Sunday, March 21, 2021 @ 2:30 pm - 4:00 pm$50
Skill level: Intermediate
This workshop is targeted at intermediate players who want to expand their instrumental skills. Practicing scales is great exercise, but there’s no substitute for certain traditional chestnuts, like “Grandfather’s Clock,” and “O Holy Night,” that have the fingering challenges built right into the melody. We’ll breakdown right-hand and left-hand techniques for mastering such spirited compositions. Enhance your chops for tackling even the most acrobatic obstacle course of a melody. The ability to read music is not necessary. Participants need a tuned chromatic autoharp and picks. Workshop handouts are provided in the keys of Dm, F and G.
