The Bluegrass Solo Workshop is a 10-week course exploring a variety of soloing techniques to take your lead playing to the next level! This class offers a creative and relaxed space to experiment with new ideas, while simultaneously honing your bluegrass jamming skills. We will examine soloing on a technical level, and also on a personal level, learning how to listen to ourselves and integrate our unique musical voice into the bluegrass tradition. Open to all acoustic instrumentalists – fiddle, mandolin, guitar, banjo, bass, dobro, harmonica.
Participants need a notebook and recording device – your phone works great! Guitar and banjo players need a capo.
The class meets immediately before the weekly Concord Open Bluegrass Jam (Thursdays at 7:30 pm), students are encouraged to stick around and participate!
Let’s Pick is a three part series running throughout the 2023/24 school year. Courses include: Intro to Bluegrass Jamming, Bluegrass Solo Workshop, and Bluegrass Vocal Workshop.
