Learnin’ the Blues Workshop

On Saturday May 20th CRBN President, Richard Green, led a workshop entitled "Learnin' the blues by playing the blues" at Spencertown Academy Arts Center in Spencertown, NY. This was an interactive experience for the participants who benefited from getting to play with experienced blues musicians - Richard was joined for the workshop by drummer Mark McKay and bassist Steve Dillard. After reviewing the structure of a basic 12 bar blues progression and working on learning some basic blues scale patterns the participants were ready to jam along to a rhythm played by Richard, Mark and Steve!
