Join Shine Delphi for a beginner to intermediate workshop on "street ragtime" with an emphasis on pre-war blues, ragtime, jump-blues, and traditional jazz. The class will focus on picking hand techniques, as well as chordal concepts that were common throughout pre-war blues styles, that can be applied to all genres. We will be talking about the old-school cats like Blind Blake and Blind Willie McTell. Come learn how to really get down on the ragtime blues, and a whole lot of fun!
