Old Time Fingerstyle Banjo

  • August 3, 2019
    1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
We're sorry, but all tickets sales have ended because the event is expired.

Before the Betse & Clarke concert later this same day, Clarke Wyatt will be offering a fiddle master class!

We’ll explore various two and three finger right hand techniques including index lead and thumb lead. I’ll teach a couple of great banjo tunes that exemplify these approaches. Whether you play bluegrass banjo, clawhammer, or any other 5-string style, you’ll learn methods for increasing your right hand vocabulary and musical expression.

Core concepts of banjo education:

  • Banjo as a Musical Instrument
  • Respect the melody
  • There’s no such thing as banjo law
  • Find your own sound
