Midnight On The Water - A Section Single String


This is a 60 minute Zoom workshop from 6-2-24. One of my favorite tunes to play is Benny Thomasson's Midnight On The Water. It's a beautifully simple melody in the key of D. I've learned so much from playing this tune over the years. When I first learned it, I challenged myself to play the whole song on one string, and make it sound good! I learned a lot about bar control, and how to utilize the "in-between slides". In this series we will learn Midnight On The Water in multiple positions, spanning 3 octaves. I'll share my phrasing ideas from lyrical single string lines, to thick chordal phrase, and crisp hammer-on and pull-off triplets, giving you the the tools to play three unique versions of this gorgeous melody spanning the entire fretboard.
