Greetings all.

I want to let everyone know that I'll be teaching a one-day banjo workshop for Banjo In The Hollow in Raleigh, NC on Saturday, March 24.

The workshop will run from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. (with a 1 hour lunch break), and is limited to 25 attendees. The cost is $50.

I'll determine the final set of topics to cover after consulting with the folks who register - based on skill level and interests - but will surely dedicate some time to playing backup in the first position, and my favorite topic: how to get a better tone by focusing on details of right hand technique.

I also hope to give every participant a chance to play, and be critiqued. We can cover any other tunes or techniques that are of interest to the class.

More details and registration info here: http://banjointhehollow.org/workshops.html

I hope I will see some of you there!

Awesome! You might want to let Zepp in Wendell, NC (www.zeppmusic.com) know, as he's probably the best area resource for banjo players. He owns Zepp Country Music.

Hello again...

I have heard from a few folks here on The Hangout who are hopeful of attending this workshop. If you are registered, please contact me as I have a few questions I want to send everyone to help me get a feel for the participants' skill level, experience and expectations for the workshop.

That will help me prepare topics and handouts.

Thanks!

Is this the same John Lawless who gave lessons at Ramblin Conrads in Norfolk, VA back in the early 80's? If so, I am glad to hear you are still out there picking. I took two lessons from you at your home in Ghent but I was not disciplined enough to stay with it. Well I am back again as a beginner and hope to learn this time and stick with it!

Mike
PS I always admired your mastery of the 5 string!

It is I! Glad to hear that the banjo bug has bitten you yet again. =)

Hang in there.
