This workshop will explore old-time, claw-hammer banjo. We will look at, and focus on the right hand technique that establishes the basic rhythm and “drive” of an old time tune. We will look at alternate tunings used to play in different keys and discuss and practice ways to play tunes “on the fly” by understanding chords and chord changes. We’ll look at drop-thumb technique as well.

My challenge, and intent, in a workshop like this is to be sure that each and every one is challenged and inspired to improve and advance in his or her own personal musical journey. Whether you are just beginning or more advanced, my aim is to move forward on that journey.

Bring a recording device.
