Arkells Launch Online "Flatten the Curve Music Class" for Fans in Self-Isolation
Learn how to play "And Then Some," "Leather Jacket" and "Years in the Making"
Published Mar 17, 2020If you're using the coronavirus lockdown as an opportunity to improve at a musical instrument, Arkells are here to help. During their self-isolation, the Canadian rock titans have launched online music lessons, which they're dubbing "Flatten the Curve Music Class."
They've been streaming the classes via Instagram Live, as well as posting chord charts on their social media accounts. Below, see the official chord charts for "And Then Some," "Leather Jacket" and "Years in the Making."
Unfortunately, today's music class is already over (it took place at 1 p.m. EDT), but frontman Max Kerman has been leading lessons on a regular basis over the last few days, so there's bound to be more soon.
In a CTV broadcast, Kerman said, "I try to find the silver lining in all this. I'm trying to be very thankful for the people in our government and the healthcare professionals that are working night and day to figure this thing out. And I've been trying to keep positive about it all. I really believe that if everybody hunkers down here for the next little bit and is well-behaved and does the right thing and does what we're told, we can get on with the fun."
