We will be starting from scratch and learning the basics of Old-Time strumming styles and three finger picking. We will cover some basic tunings starting with standard G and its related chord shapes then progressing from there into other tunings and chord shapes. We will learn to play some basic melodies suitable for jamming with others and also how to play backup and be part of an ensemble or group jam. The only requirements are a playable banjo and a thirsty mind. This class will be taught primarily by ear with TAB and video materials being provided after class.
