Music for free trad music classes at Horsmonden now up
« on: September 04, 2012, 11:03:42 PM »

The next Horsmonden traditional music class is on Wednesday the 12th September. The main tunes are Sussex Bonny Breastknot and The Steamboat, but as usual there will be a third that we'll learn slowly by ear on the night and which I will later record and put on YouTube so you can go back and try it again.

We'll likely play a couple of tunes from earlier classes to warm up, but the real work of the evening will be to concentrate on the new tunes, which we'll play steadily and slowly, only moving on to the next one when it seems right to do so. We'll also spend some time thinking about how we can tackle the tunes and make them lively, danceable and interesting.

Towards the end of the evening, we may retire to the bar for some rather more informal sessioning!

The trad music class meets at the Gun & Spitroast pub at Horsmonden at 8pm on the second and fourth Wednesdays of the month. The classes are free and all are welcome.

Download pdfs, abcs and access YouTubes of the tunes we're working with at:

See you all soon I hope,
