The Blues: North America's Musical Language



Location: R1

Instructor: Darol Anger (fiddle) & Stash Wyslouch (guitar)

Style: Blues

The Blues, as a musical idiom and common language, pervades EVERY style of American music and is an essential communication tool for every musician who lives here. Like the fugue, waltz, and sarabande, it's a musical form. It's also a harmonic and melodic system with a very specific set of moves and skills. We will analyze and PLAY the Blues, focusing on the form, and the three crucial Blue Notes in the Blues scale and how to use them. Listeners welcome even if you don't pick up an instrument.
