Fall Performances: December 4th, 5th, & 6th, 2019

Swingin' Strings,
Cyd Smith,
Saturday, 3:00-4:30pm

Class ID: CJLLXP015

Not getting a lot of swing feel in your soloing? Struggling with your time? Swing guitarist Cyd Smith will help you work on this essential element of your playing. The class will work on riffs as an improvising tool and as a way to really focus on keeping in the groove. In addition the class will work on using a song's melody as basis for melodic improvisation. Riffs and licks are great, but melody is too—and it don't mean a thing if it ain't got that...
