We will learn the simple melody first and then I'll show you how I approach adding rolls and embellishments. We will learn the "B" section two ways, with pull offs in open position, and melodic style combining rolls with open strings and scale patterns up the neck. This is such a fun tune that everyone seems to know! 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". We'll spend the month of June learning 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. By the end of the month you will have the tools to play three unique versions of this gorgeous melody spanning the entire fretboard. *Recordings of each class will be provided. You do not need to attend the sessions live to take this class, just log into the website and recordings and TAB will be waiting in the "my programs" section. If missed signing up, you can purchase the class from the zoom class archive page.
