Building Variations into Tunes on Oldtime Banjo




Instructor: Allison de Groot (banjo)

Style: Oldtime

This workshop will go over ways to build variations into tunes, sending you home with tools you can incorporate into any tune. It can be difficult to break away from a banjo arrangement in a jam and rely on muscle memory, so we will discuss how to break down a tune and then rebuild to make it more interesting. We will learn by ear, but tablature will be provided and bring a recording device.
