This camp will have a “Basic Level” emphasis, while three other Abingdon weekend camps (April 9-11, July 23-25, and October 15-17) will have a “Level 2” emphasis. All are welcome to attend one or more camps. Not sure which is the better fit for you? Contact Gilbert Nelson (firstname.lastname@example.org) and he’ll help you figure it out!
All bluegrass instruments welcome
No jamming experience necessary
You will be jamming the first class!
Friendly, encouraging, knowledgeable teaching.
Singing not required, but encouraged and taught.
Easy 2- and 3-chord songs, slow speeds.
Soloing not required! “Faking” solos taught.
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)
