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)
Art Hansen has been playing banjo for most of his life and teaching it for over 30 years. For 25 years, he played with the popular Utah bluegrass band The Stormy Mountain Boys, a group known for tight vocal harmonies and great musicianship. Art now teaches bluegrass banjo and guitar out of his Sandy, Utah studio. He loves teaching and is quoted saying, “I create a relaxed environment for learning and having fun!” Art has led jam sessions with students at their homes, to help them hear and learn to interact with other players.
