Irish Mandolin: That Irish sound and how to get it in your playing
In the workshop, we'll...
discuss the skills needed for playing Irish music on the mandolin
We'll work on both right and left hand techniques to develop the distinctive rhythmic
forms, deliver the pulse of the music, improve tone production and sustain. We'll
highlight the unique things that the mandolin brings to the music.
explore phrasing, ornamentation and variation
We'll focus on musicality, how to give life and lift to the tunes you learn, how to take them from a series of notes into joyful, gratifying expression in Irish music!
