Starting with the basic folk chords you know, we will concentrate on getting a powerful tone and clear strum on the offbeat. We’ll build on that by connecting one chord to the other with traditional bass runs, then on to more complex movements by great backing guitarists such as Riley Puckett, Melvin Dupree, and Jim Baxter. During the class you will pick up useful concepts such as chromatic steps, chord substitutions and circle of fifths as we study tunes of the old time repertoire.

Class Level: Multi-Level

Required Class Materials: A guitar and a pick

Evan Kinney grew up in a family of old time musicians in his native Kennesaw, Georgia. He learned from his father at an early age and has continued to hone his skills by studying the eccentric guitar playing of 20’s recording artists such as Riley Puckett, Slim Bryant and Melvin Dupree and Eddie Lang. Also a fiddler and banjo player, Evan has performed with bands such as The HickHoppers, Georgia Crackers, and Dixieland Squirrel Skinners and has taught traditional music at John C. Campbell, Blue Ridge Old Time Week at Mars Hill, Festival of American Fiddle Tunes, and The Brooklyn Folk Fest.
