Tim Sparks - Beautiful Chord Shapes to Use in Drop D Tuning
Sunday, October 23, 11:00am–12:00pm
The Pavillion at The Bear Cantina, 295A Tinker Street, Woodstock, NY   See Map

This class will explore some of the rich chordal sounds to be found when playing in Drop D tuning.

To demonstrate this I will share tabs of an arrangement of Eric Clapton’s “If I Could Change the World” and the Doc Watson classic “Deep River Blues.”

The class will see how these two tunes change when transposed from their original key of E to D with Drop D tuning.

There will be tab handouts and bringing an instrument is encouraged.
