Banjo Workshop at Gilliam Music

10:00AM until 4:00PM or so…

Hosted by Mark Raborn and Chris Talley Armstrong

Join us for a 5-String banjo workshop hosted by Raborn & Armstrong!

This 5-string banjo workshop is suitable for ALL skill levels and will cover many, MANY aspects of playing banjo. (We will divide the group at different points in the sessions to better accommodate different proficiency levels) From Right Hand and Left Hand technique to music theory to rolls, chords and how to make it all work, we’ll help advance your playing, no matter what level you’re at and no matter what learning challenges you’ve experienced!

All skill levels are welcome. Nothing more is required, except a banjo and some ideas about what you want to learn.

Some of the topics to be covered include:

Music Theory as it Applies to Banjo: Only the important stuff and how to use it. This segment also focuses on ‘how to begin playing in jam sessions when you don’t know the music.’

Playing Technique: Does it ever seem like you practice and practice and see little improvement? Sometimes, a subtle technique adjustment will make all the difference.

Fret-board geography: Includes Licks and lines, chords, scales and how to apply them to your playing.

Three primary styles of 3-finger playing-Scruggs, Melodic and Single-String

This segment also emphasizes ‘back-up’ technique and how to get the most from what you have to work with.

Basic instrument set-up--Chris is a master at getting the best possible sound from your banjo!

Tunes, Tunes, Tunes! Be thinking of some you’ve wanted to learn or work on.

Each participant will receive handouts of tablature and relevant work materials, as well as audio files with tunes we work on, both slow and medium tempo.

It’s like 3-6 months of lessons in one day!
