The Blackest Crow
- 25 US dollars$25
We’ll learn to play this Civil War era lament — also known as “My Dearest Dear”, “The Time Draws Near”, and “The Lover’s Lament”— in DGD tuning. One of the haunting elements of this piece is that it never quite resolves. You’ll learn to play the simple melody, add a few chords, and try different strum patterns. The focus of Tea and a Tune is learning tunes by rote -- using your ear, your eyes, and a gentle play-after-me-method. You will learn the tune without sheet music in front of you! Even people who struggle to play by ear will find that they are able to play and memorize these tunes! Sheet music will be provided upon completion of the live class. Classes will be recorded, and all registered participants will have access to the recording for at least 1 year. Make yourself a cup of tea, relax, and join friends in learning a tune.
