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)


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
