Jump on board as harmonica player and guitarist Michael McInerney takes you on an easy music adventure into the mellow world of the blues.
The blues is a kind of popular folk music from America and the harmonica is a small wind instrument you play with your mouth to make groovy blues sounds. And did you know that blues is the granddaddy of rock and roll? Lots of early rock and even up to the present day use blues structures and licks.
Join in the fun and learn to play a ghost train riff, make funny farm yard animals sounds, discover funky blues chords and find out what a blue note is in music. You might even meet the ghost who woke up this morning with a bad case of the blues!
Suitable for total beginners to the blues and the harmonica.
Check out The Ghost Train, which showcases some of the techniques that you will learn in the workshop.
