SMG-Online Wednesday Slow Session

Wednesdays, 7.30-8.30pm

Every week at the Scots Music Group ( I run a slow session class, and afterwards a slow session in a pub in Edinburgh. I'm going to try to keep this up, but from the comfort of your own homes. I'll post links to the tunes (PDFs and MP3s) below.

All classes at SMG have been suspended until further notice, but I'll be conducting the Wednesday Slow Session online for the next term.

Everyone is welcome to join in the SMG Monday Slow Session;
you don't have to be a SMG member to play.
See below for how to join the session.

It's not possible for us to have a real session - everyone playing at the same time - because of the slight delay over the internet, so it's not the perfect solution, but it'll do until we get past the current crisis.

and you'll be ready to start. 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.
