Beginning Bluegrass Banjo with Mac Petrequin. #1322-0519. 1/2 day.

May 19 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Free – $55.

Bluegrass banjo is the familiar sound that drove such favorites as the Beverly Hillbillies Theme Song, Rocky Top, and Foggy Mountain Breakdown. In this class you will learn enough about the banjo so that you can use a variety of available instructional aids from your home and progress with learning Bluegrass banjo at your own pace. You will be exposed to the basics of playing 5-string Bluegrass banjo, including tunings, left hand chord shapes, right hand rolls, vamping, hammer-ons, pull-offs, chokes, chimes, and how to read tablatures. We’ll also look at online sites about banjo practice and instruction. Bring a playable 5-string banjo, two metal finger picks, and a thumb pick. Although there will be several handouts, an audio recorder is a good idea.
