New Session - Beginning Banjo Backup

Just wanted to let everyone know that we are starting a new session for beginner banjo players. It meets every other Monday at 6:30 for one hour (or a little longer). This is for rank beginners. You need to know how to make the chords G, C, D7 and A. That's it! Here are the things we will cover:

Nashville Number System
Basic right-hand backup pattern
Variations to right-hand backup pattern
Moveable chord forms
Basic music theory as it pertains to bluegrass, folk & country
Tags & turn arounds
Fake breaks
Basic fill-in licks
Your questions and LOTS of playing

This is an entry level class. We practice everything together. It is very low key. Everyone will be making mistakes and learning new things together.

The cost is $10.00. No registration needed, just come. We will be meeting at 6:30 p.m. on Monday, August 20th, and then every other Monday after that. If you would like more information, send me an e-mail or give us a call at The Bluegrass Shack.
