Have you ever been told, just play anything, it'll sound great? It has not been Sharon's experience that just anything sounds great. She will show you how you can use chord tones for accompaniment to a tune (for example, in an Irish jam session or around a campfire), or as an improvisation or interlude. In this workshop you will become very familiar with what notes make up a chord and how to use them. There will be plenty of practice to help you gain mastery of 3 note chord inversions and play pattern finger shapes to build on accompaniment and improvisational possibilities.
