Greetings, banjoists!

I've been thinking on ways to teach the neck lately, so I'll be doing a 2 1/2 hour workshop Saturday, Dec 4, 2021 at 1pm Central: Generating New Licks and Ideas.

In hour 1 we'll learn an Earl Scruggs or J.D. Crowe solo. Then we'll use specific licks from the solo to explore the fingerboard and to come up up with our own licks and ideas.

In hour 2 we'll repeat the same process with one of my solos.

The last half hour will be questions and answers.

I'll tab the solos beforehand with a few lick variations, but we'll explore most of the options live, and I'll tab those lick variations when I edit the video.

Video and extra tabs will be up a week or two after and available to workshop participants for at least a year.

This is great! Quick question though, will this be geared towards beginners, intermediates, etc. or will it really depend on the makeup of the attendees?

It will be intermediate/advanced, requiring a decent knowledge of rolls, chords, et cetera. We're going to learn two solos, and then we'll experiment with the ideas in the solos, requiring at least intermediate skills.
