VSS 2021 Tutor Event 1

What’s in a Tune?

Stylistic approaches to popular tunes.
A chance to hear examples of interpretations of a couple of tunes from the tutors, with a discussion on the process of developing their way of playing it.

Before the event, we asked each tutor to record themselves playing each tune a couple of times through, as if in a session, for a dance or with friends (i.e. not with the thought of teaching it).

These are reference recordings, to illustrate the points made in the live discussion event.
