Description: Come celebrate the songs of John Prine! We'll dig into tunes like In Spite of Ourselves, That's the Way that the World Goes Round, Long Monday, Sam Stone and Illegal Smile, but we'll be open to class favorites as well. This class will serve as a great intro to fingerpicking. Prine had a distinct way of fingerpicking that he uses in many of his songs, as well as simple left hand ornaments to chords that works well with his right hand pattern.
Prerequisite:Knowledge of open chords (C, A, G, E, D plus minors) and some experience/comfort with bar chords. Prine uses the barred F chord a lot, the bane of many a beginner. Some experience fingerpicking a plus.
Required Materials: Acoustic guitar, tuner, capo
