Vibrant young cellist Natalie Haas brings an arsenal of musical ideas, exercises, rhythms, chords, grooves and great tunes to this lesson on how to back up melodic instruments. She details the mechanics of hand and arm positions that provide the percussive chops and powerful syncopations. You'll soon be creating grooves with rhythmic and melodic elements, combining chord shapes with the chop, shuffle bowing, bass runs, double stops, muting, pizzicato, and more. "Tarbolton Lodge," "Highland Laddie," "Athole Brose," "Between," "Brose and Butter," "Keys to the Cellar," "She's Sweetest When She's Naked" and "Where I Was Last Night." Early intermediate.
