  • What are the core characteristics of the 5-string banjo? How does understanding them help your banjo playing sound strong, old-time, and satisfying, no matter what your skill level? How do you bring them out while creating your own sound and repertoire? We’ll consider a couple of tunes that really bring the banjo’s possibilities alive in clawhammer and finger-picking, and expand out from there as time allows. We may try a few tunings. You should be an intermediate-or-above player with some facility on the banjo, reasonably adept at tuning, and willing to explore ideas in a relaxed, good-humored environment. More advanced and less advanced students are welcome; we’ll use a system that helps everyone learn comfortably. Bring a recording device if you wish.
