Joy Kills Sorrow: “Such Great Heights”
 
Peghead Nation welcomes our two newest instructors, Zoe Guigueno and Wes Corbett, who played together in the influential stringband Joy Kills Sorrow.
By: Dan Gabel
August 29, 2019

It is somehow fitting that we launch our latest courses, Bass with Zoe Guigueno and Contemporary Bluegrass Banjo with Wes Corbett, on the same day, because they’re both virtuoso players in their own right, and they’ve also played and toured together as members of the popular Boston-based roots stringband Joy Kills Sorrow earlier in this decade. The band also included guitarist Matt Arcara, vocalist Emma Beaton, and mandolinist Jacom Jolliff, and included Peghead Nation mandolin instructor Joe K. Walsh in a previous incarnation. 

In this video, the band plays “Such Great Heights,” a song written by The Postal Service, and which Joy Kills Sorrow recorded on their last release, 2013’s EP Wide Awake.

In her Peghead Nation course, Zoe is teaching how to play upright bass from scratch with great advice on right- and left-hand technique and in-depth lessons on playing bass patterns, scales, and melodies in most common keys. She includes bass lines from great roots music songs so you can play along.
