Friendly, encouraging, knowledgeable teaching.
Singing not required, but encouraged and taught.
Easy 2- and 3-chord songs, slow speeds.

Do you qualify? It’s easier than you may think!
If you play guitar, mandolin, banjo, fiddle, bass, or dobro… you can be part of a bluegrass jam.
You must be able to tune your instrument (electronic tuning devices welcome) and change smoothly between G, C, D, and A. (Fiddles and basses need to know which notes work with which chords)
