The Handmade Music School presents Booms, Chucks and Runs Part II with Kris Truelsen on Thursday, July 1, 2021 at 3:00 EDT. The workshop will be presented via Crowdcast as part of our Handmade at Home online series. Cost is a minimum contribution of $5 (suggested donation of $15).
Our first Booms, Chucks, and Runs workshop focused on old time guitar fundamentals and Part II will dig even deeper to help you bring the most out of your playing. We’ll talk rhythm, tone, feel, practice technique and get you some nice runs to add to your bag of tricks. These are important tools that will help take your playing to the next level and this workshop will help you put these concepts into practice!
Kris Truelsen is the leader of Bill and the Belles, a cutting-edge string band based out of Johnson City TN. Over the years Kris has developed a unique approach to singing, songwriting and guitar playing influenced by sounds of the past yet remaining fresh and original. As the first to earn his masters degree in Appalachian Studies from East Tennessee State University, he continues to expand and share his knowledge of traditional American music and his enthusiasm surrounding early country music touches audiences internationally.
