This will be a 3 hour hands-on workshop, geared for all levels from beginning to advanced. It would be best if you can at least play a few tunes and know some of the rolls. (If you pay for the workshop though and just want to watch that is ok as well.)
Tony will be covering: ways to improve your timing (and generally achieve a professional sound), playing the syllables (a very important Earl Scruggs concept), back-up ideas, developing solos, and improvisational strategies. He’ll also be touching upon melodic and single string styles as well. More advanced topics can covered if people are interested.
In addition to prepared tabs and materials that he wants to go through, he strongly encourages student participation. Feel free to ask any questions you may have and he encourages you to bring a video or aural recording device.
Here is some background on him if you do not know his amazing accomplishments. Tony is not only considered amongst the most innovative of banjo players, he is one of its most respected and sought after instructors creating fifteen instructional books as well as a series of DVDs. In 2009, he launched the groundbreaking Tony Trischka School of Banjo, an advanced, interactive, online instructional site that is the banjo home for students from around the world. He will be inducted into the American Banjo Museum Hall of Fame for his work in education and instruction in Sept of 2017.
