In this mornings first session the class warmed up using their two, three and four finger exercises, Minor Pentatonic Scale shapes (1-5) and then learnt the five positions of the Major Pentatonic Scale.
After the warm up session the class learnt how to play Gary Moore’s ‘Texas Strut’, an up tempo blues shuffle in the Key of A.
A great first session this morning.
After the tea break the class learnt the famous intro lick to ‘Crossroads’ by Eric Clapton.
The challenging lick involves hammer-ons, pull-offs, bends and vibrato.
The class gathered into their bands this afternoon to begin rehearsing a song that will be recorded tomorrow (Friday – final day) as a memento of the holiday.
Band 1: (Crossroads – Cream)
Band 2: (Texas Strut – Gary Moore)
Band 3: (Texas Strut – Gary Moore)
A fantastic end to a great day! 🙂
