Please join Frank Markovich, Associate Professor of Music and Director of Guitar Studies at Skyline College for 47 years, leader of the West Coast Master Guitar Camp for 4 years, with over 50 years of instruction and performance experience, for an informative workshop on using percussive techniques, and holding and strumming with a pick. We will play some songs using the pick (provided). Instruction will also include the technique of choking for rhythmic effect. We will be playing at least one song using each of techniques. A pick is not necessary for this course. You may use fingers and thumb if you prefer. A 30 minute beginners lesson at 5:30p. The workshop will be followed by our monthly uke jam. Playlist will be posted here when available. Here is a link to the presentation:
