Start Date: Tue, August 16, 2022 Start Time: 02:30 PMEnd Date: Thu, August 18, 2022 End Time: 04:00 PMDescription: Dáithí Sproule has long been involved with, and fascinated by, the process of arranging traditional songs — which for most of their history existed without any accompaniment — for guitar and other chordal instruments. He will share and discuss examples and show a fairly systematic process for arriving at the best options and making decisions about key, tuning, capo-placement, picking versus strumming, tempo, phrasing and chording.
