In this 90 minute repertoire workshop, I’ll teach you an arrangement of “Route 66” made famous by Nat King Cole. This jazz blues builds on the classic 3-chord blues by adding some transition chords. We’ll focus in particular on rhythmic techniques such as slides and stop-time, which help achieve the authentic sound and swing for this song.
Level: Intermediate & up. Chord diagrams will be provided on handouts.
Price: $15 Canadian. This is a special discount price in case you’ve been affected by the pandemic.
Tuning: this workshop will use GCEA tuning. Both low and high G welcome.
This workshop will be delivered online via Zoom. If you don’t have a webcam and just want to follow along, that is fine. But if you have a question that requires me to see you play, please turn on your webcam so that I can see your hands and your instrument. You do not have to install special software – Zoom can run in your web browser. You will receive a weblink when you register.
