I'm really excited about my next Banjo Hangout Online Workshop, Upper Level Earl: Scruggs Techniques for Advanced Players, coming up on Sunday, December 4 from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. Pacific Time. Here's a special announcement: If you have a specific request of something that you would like for me to cover and you let me know (and you register) before November 27th, I'll transcribe a tab and include your song or lick request in the session. Here's a complete description of what we'll cover (and take note that I welcome intermediate level players as well - you don't have to be an expert player to learn a great deal at this workshop):
Upper Level Earl: Scruggs Techniques for Advanced Players This session is ideal for intermediate to advanced players who are ready to move beyond the contents in Earl’s book to learn some of his more challenging pieces (including “Foggy Mountain Special,” “Don’t Let Your Deal Go Down,” and “Farewell Blues”). We’ll also cover many of Earl’s most well known up the neck back-up licks and fills as well as uncover the secrets of his slow song two-finger backup (“I’ll Just Pretend”). We’ll take a close look at fingering options and how we can use Earl’s approach to create our own music, based on his style. Tab examples will be emailed in advance and I’ll be happy to cover student requests for those who register by Nov. 27.
Don't forget that you can record video for later use and that you'll have a stack of tabs that you'll take away from the session (tabs are emailed as pdf files in advance). I hope to see some of you for what I think is going to be a very informative and fun session!
