Irish Guitar Accompaniment



TERM 2, 2024

INSTRUCTOR: Evan Kinney (bio)
TIME: Tue – 6:00pm, In-person

Using the open chord shapes you already know, we will start with learning the rhythmic styles for different types of Irish tunes (reel, jig, hornpipe, polka, etc.). From there we will learn about chord choice and the “chord families” for the common Irish keys.

Once these fundamentals are in place we will move on to alternate tunings such as “drop D” and “DADGAD” and of course have fun playing Irish tunes to continue reinforcing what we’ve learned!

Designed for any guitar players who already know a few chords and who have an interest in traditional Irish music!

This class meets in person.
