This class is a weekly exploration of playing 'old time' and fiddle tunes on banjo and -- with other instruments such as guitar and mandolin. The emphasis of the class is on playing tunes and developing practical experience in working together. Each week students will learn a new song. In class we will play the song using traditional solo or accompaniment styles such as claw-hammer on banjo and complementary styles on guitar and mandolin. Students will be expected to practice each week well enough to be able to play in tempo with the other workshop participants.
Various instruments are welcome with the permission of the instructor (contact Rene) The primary focus will be 5-string banjo and mandolin. Students should be comfortable reading tablature and/or musical notation. Some knowledge of chord relationships is helpful but not required.
For further information please feel free to contact the instructor.
