I hope to see you in July at the ODPC Funfest in Evart, Michigan. I’m teaching four classes:
Thursday, July 18, 9am – Hammer Control Basics. Yep, this is the same class I always teach. The basics never lose their importance, and we can always get better. Bring a variety of hammers.
Thursday, July 18, 2pm – Mastering Double Stroke Rolls gain control over this easy to understand, but tough to master, rudiment.
Friday, July 19, 11am – Banish Improvisational Misfortune. We’ll look at ways you can improvise your own variations of this great tune, “Banish Misfortune” on the fly with a technique that applies to many songs. Please know the tune ahead of time. Download the sheet music here.
Saturday, July 20, 11am – Learn: Entertaining the Fish. Snappy, fun, easy to learn and a crowd-pleaser.
Here it here. Download the sheet music here. (I just noticed that the way I play this now has changed quite a bit from when I transcribed it years ago. I’ll redo the transcription and record a video by this weekend 6/21, and post it here.) I’ll teach the entire song in the class, but if you learn it ahead of time we can get a lot more done. See you soon!
