Class Info

This class is for intermediate to advanced clawhammer banjo players who want to explore the banjo as a versatile accompanying instrument.

We will cover topics such as: how to use tunings and the capo to play in different keys, right hand techniques for creating more interesting accompanying patterns, fills and instrumental lead breaks, choosing the best key for your voice, simple fingerpicking patterns for waltzes, and much more. We will be learning a variety of songs in order to practice these techniques. The repertoire will include songs from the old time, folk, old country, contemporary singer/songwriter realms and more….

This class is recommended for anyone who has completed my Banjo II and/or Banjo III classes or for anyone who has moderate skills (drop thumb, tunes and chords in G, Double C, and Modal tunings, etc.) on the clawhammer banjo. This will primarily be a by-ear class, although tablature may be provided for some songs.

The focus will be on banjo (not singing) technique but yes, we will be singing! Contact Leela at leelagracemusic@gmail.com for more information.
