Music of Papa Charlie Jackson

Papa Charlie Jackson was the first self-accompanied solo guitar (six-string banjo) songster of the 1920’s . The songs he recorded are influential. Learning a few of his tunes will help you with hearing not just his music, but the music of many other early blues and jazz musicians. We’ll be talking about how he uses the chord positions in these keys. His instrumental technique uses both banjo style strumming and syncopated fingerpicking, so it’s highly adaptable to the ukulele.

By ear, no TAB.

This session is limited to C-tuned ukes (no baritones).
