Kids On Bluegrass Europe, the project

Curiosity of the moment

A boy, a banjo, some harmonics.

Matthew Govig plays Wild Goose Chase.

Names of the notes and chords

In Latin language countries (France, Spain, Italy etc), the names of the notes are Do Ré Mi Fa Sol La and Si. In Anglo-Saxon culture countries, they are called A B C D E F G.

Only 2 chords, D and G. Will you make it ?

The Nashville system

This stuff is really useful to quickly figure out how to back up a tune in any key.

And the best is that, if you know a few scales (4 or 5) by heart, "quicky" becomes "instantly".

Rewarding, isn't it ?
