Intro to 2-Finger Banjo
Instructor: Seth Swingle
Ages: Teens & Adults
Description: 2-Finger is one of the hidden styles of old-time banjo; ubiquitous in the 1930’s, and unfortunately rare in modern times. It’s ideal as backup for singing, for waltzes and other non-standard time signatures in oldtime, for solo showpieces, and just for fun! If you’re new to the banjo, or already play clawhammer and want to try out a new style, this is the class for you! Join the ranks of famous 2-finger players like Doc Watson, Hobart Smith, Roscoe Holcomb and Morgan Sexton and expand your banjo universe. Advanced beginner – intermediate level players welcome.
Please bring:
-Functional clawhammer banjo
-Tuner
-Recording devise
-Pen/pencil and paper optional
Tuesdays, 4/23 – 5/28
5pm – 5:55pm
$150
