JOE COLLINS WORKSHOP

For Mountain Dulcimers

Saturday February 8, 2020

Kroc Center 1833 Broad St, Augusta, GA

With a Free Concert on Friday February 7, 2020 at 7 p.m.

Registration 9:00 am

Session 1 9:30-10:45 Crossing Over to the Fun Side! (Novice & Up) This workshop gently glides players to leave the security of playing the melody string to exploring the world of cross-picking. Also there is some work with scales and hitting individual strings. We will learn to cross-pick some familiar songs effectively and efficiently.

Session 2 11:00 – 12: 15 Patterns & Rhythms (Novice to Intermediate) A workshop on strumming and picking patterns. The focus is on strumming-hand technique, helping the player to create rhythms, broken chords, and arpeggios that will give the instrument a fuller sound.

Session 3 After Lunch Hot Licks & Cool Sounds (Novice & Up) A workshop on how to do those cool things that make people say, “WOW! How did he/she do that?” Covers ornamentation techniques like hammer-ons, pull-offs, slides, grace notes, trills, bends, harmonics and muting. Work will be on simple songs where these techniques can be applied and practiced.

There will be a short concert after the workshop
