Description: This class will explore a variety of songs from the canon of Jerry Garcia and David Grisman. While individually covering so much musical ground, the Mando and Guitar duo had a special chemistry along with an incredibly interesting catalog of songs recorded. Some will be hand-picked and some chosen by group interest. Although mandolin and guitar are the featured instruments in the music, I’ll welcome all instruments being as the music can be applied universally.
Prerequisite: Will request some basic knowledge of chords and intermediate level playing. The ultimate goal will be to have our own group specific arrangements to play through together and have a good time!
What students will need:
Functional mandolin (bridge and all 8 strings intact, all tuners in working order)
Notebook & pencil
Recording device optional
