Old Time Fiddle and Other lead instruments June 19
Saturday June 18:
10 am - noon - Clawhammer Banjo Technique - For beginners and beyond, who are interested in playing better. We’ll review the basics as I play them – hand and instrument positions, tone, intonation and rhythm. Double- and Drop-thumb techniques will be covered, as most of us find them to be very important to the Old Time sound.
Tunes, per se, will not be the goal in this workshop; rather the improvement of your clawhammer skills and the ability to learn tunes by ear. Some written music may be used for illustration purposes.
2 - 4 pm - Clawhammer Banjo Tune Development -
