If you are an intermediate / advanced player and have played bluegrass, country, folk, Americana, or of course swing, this class is for you.

We'll study and practice swing rhythms, right hand technique, swing chords patterns, familiar chord changes,how to get the "swing feel", and soloing. And most importantly: how to play swing with others in a band or jam situation.

We'll use as little theory as possible. We'll work on at least 1 new song per session that demonstrates the topic for that week.

Prerequisites: be able to comfortably play the "standard" chords (a.k.a. the "campfire" or "cowboy" chords!). Reading music or tabs not required.
