SMG Slow Session at Gatherer's Inn

Each Wednesday evening after the SMG classes, I run a slow session for any and all students of the SMG classes. Each session we particularly concentrate on a specific tune (listed below), and then play through some of our regular slow session tunes, also available below. The tunes are available to download in advance in various formats, including MP3 soundfiles.

All classes at SMG (the Scots Music Group) are being conducted online this term, and I'll be continuing the Wednesday Slow Session online until the end of the year. The session is open to everyone.

Joining the Session

In order to participate, you need the Zoom app. When it's time for the workshop, by clicking the "Join Session" button on the right, you will be asked if you wish to download Zoom. Agree (it's free and quick to download).

Most of the time I'll switch everyone's microphone off and you'll only hear me, but every so often I'll switch individuals on and ask how they're doing.
