Anyone had lessons/workshop with Alec Finn?
Alec Finn is teaching the bouzouki class at Augusta Heritage Festival this summer (and also I think at East Durham). I’m trying to decide between his class or Angelina Carberry’s banjo class.
I have a (relatively) new octave mandolin that I tune GDae. I’d like to get a lot better playing it, particularly playing tunes. I’m told Alec plays a greek bouzouki. Does anyone know if his zouk is strung with 4 courses? Or 3 or 6? Does anyone know how he tunes it? Does anyone know if he teaches playing melodies on ‘zouk or just accompaniment?
