This banjo workshop will focus a lot on how to use your thumb to make the banjo swing in different percussive ways. We will study common phrases on the banjo and learn how to vary them in different ways. This will not be a repertoire heavy workshop, but rather using a tune or two that utilize certain helpful techniques, and working hard to have really good economy of motion with our claws. This class is appropriate for advance beginner & intermediate level players. Being able to bum-ditty is required, and having some experience with drop thumbing will be very helpful. Class is limited to 12 participants.
