Choosing Chords Wisely to Accompany Tunes

  • Bellingham Folk School 1208 Cornwall Avenue Bellingham, WA, 98225 United States (map)


Sunday, September 18th 11am-12pm $10 | Evan Ingalls

Using a few example songs or tunes as our base, we will examine different ways an accompanying instrumentalist can choose chords to underlie a melody. We will probably find that there are a lot of different ways to do this, even for a single melody! Suitable for those with chord-playing instruments and a basic knowledge of music theory (comfortable using various chords, and talking about them in Roman numerals). Taught by Evan Ingalls in conjunction with the Bellingham Irish Festival.
