Hawaiian Turnarounds and Arpeggios
Have you ever wondered how Hawaiian musicians pick the melodies to the instrumental part at the beginning or between verses while everyone else is strumming it? These are called turnarounds. Herb Ohta Jr. will teach you four Hawaiian Turnarounds in the Key of "C". Herb will also show you finger picking patterns, called arpeggios, that were taught to him by his father, Ohta-san. This workshop is geared for intermediate to advanced players.
