"Slide and Steel"
Resonators, Dobros, Tricones, Weissenborns and konas, lap steels and steel guitars…. welcome to a presentation of sliding a bar on strings in it's many styles and forms, from early to contemporary, Hawaiian to Hot Club, acoustic to electric, tuning to tuning, and 6 strings to 8 strings. This is not a hands-on instructional, but an up-close and intimate private concert and demonstration of the many different instruments used by Cindy in myriad musical situations. Cindy will touch on their histories, attributes and applications, tones and tunings, and offer tips and techniques for fretting with a steel bar, slides and glissandos, picking patterns, and lots of music will be played! A chance to finally answer the question Cindy is most often asked, "So what's the difference between a Resonator and a steel guitar?" and more, as this clinic welcomes questions and discussion.
Please note that NO recording, filming, cellphones or photography will be allowed at this session.
Level: None! All are welcome.
