Howdy, Folks,

In February, I am holding the second new Slow Jam! This jam is open to beginning banjo students and to intermediate students who have never jammed before or have little jam experience. Rhythm guitar players and mandolin choppers are welcome as well. This will happen monthly.

The date: February 17, 2018.

Time: 1-3 PM.

Location: 23 South Stewart Street, Winchester, Va. My “Teaching Place.”

Cost: $100 for the two-hour jam.

Class size: maximum number 8.

How to sign up: Text or call me: 540-533-9685

Prerequisites: All taught on New Beginning Banjo Vol 1.

You have to be able to vamp G, C, and D chords.

You have to be able to play at least ONE of the following and to get the most out of the jam, it would be good if you could play all three:

Banjo in the Hollow

Boil Them Cabbage Down

Cripple Creek

If time permits we will also likely play:

Blue Ridge Cabin Home

Bury Me Beneath the Willow

I teach easy “roly poly” breaks to these on New Beginning Banjo Vol 1.

Plenty of parking on the street & in the parking lot next to my Teaching Place.
