12th February 2014

Well the weather prevented a few people from joining us tonight – but we carried on regardless – and I hope those of you who braved the elements thought it was worthwhile! I certainly did… warmed me up no end!

We looked at one new song this evening and introduced a new technique – finger picking.

I have done a little worksheet here for you to look at (using TAB – please get in touch if you would like me to explain TAB in more detail)

PRACTISING FINGER-PICKING

and then we used this technique to play this classic love song

UNCHAINED MELODY updated feb14

i did a little tutorial for my Otley group when we learned this technique which you may find helpful (although we are plucking the G and A strings on the 1st AND 4th beat of the bar) but we will have another look at this next week!

ta ra for now
