This will be a 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.
Tony will be covering ways to improve your timing (and generally achieve a professional sound), playing the syllables (a very important Earl Scruggs concept for really playing the melody of a song), back-up ideas, developing solos, and improvisational strategies. He will also be touching upon melodic and single string styles. More advanced topics can covered if people are interested.
A note from Tony: “In addition to prepared tabs and materials that I want to go through, I strongly encourage student participation. Feel free to ask any questions you may have and feel free to bring a video or aural recording device. Most importantly, we’ll have fun while doing this!”
