Banjo Workshop with Bruce Molsky

We’ll dig into right hand clawhammer banjo techniques, from simple frailing and drop thumb to different kinds of rolls, and left hand moves as well. We’ll see how they’re used to create melody, move chords and get that all-important rhythmic pulse under the music. You’ll come out with a few more tunes as well as some general ideas about picking up tunes out of the air and setting them on your instrument.
