Welcome to the GFW Very Slow Session"A chance for players of all instruments to have a tune together at a speed we can all manage..."
PLEASE NOTE We now meet twice a month at Knolls Kitchen Bar (previously Siempre) 162 Dumbarton Rd, Glasgow, G11 6XE - Kelvinhall Subway Station. YOU DON'T HAVE TO ATTEND GFW CLASSES TO JOIN US! COME ALONG AND HAVE A TUNE!
See VSS NEWS page or Facebook for date of next meeting
Very Slow Session Repertoire! See links on this page to sound files, music, chords , fingering and tablature.
The session is for players of any instrument and at any level; however the tunes will all be played RELATIVELY slowly so that people in the early stages of their playing can have an opportunity to play together a selection of easy tunes in an informal setting.
NOTE: If you CANNOT play ANY complete tunes by yourself then you’re not quite ready for the VSS. However please come along and LISTEN. Bring your instrument with you.You will only acquire a repertoire by immersing yourself in the music and we play the same tunes every time.You’ll soon begin to recognise them and that will develop your EAR, your MUSICAL MEMORY and your confidence to try tunes and build up your repertoire.
For links to sound files, sheet music, tabs and chords for the tunes we are likely to play, click here.
Repertoire Class (Wednesday nights at John Wheatley BEFORE warm up session 6.30-7.00pm)
As a way of giving new players a chance to learn some of the VERY SLOW SESSION repertoire (or introduce new tunes from time to time) we are offering a HALF HOUR tune learning session before the Warm-up starts.
This will happen every week, immediately before the Warm-up on Wednesdays. (Usually in Room RF 10) No charge, just turn up and learn a tune.
