Mandolin Workshop with Carl Jones
May 28, 2016 : 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm$20.00
Teacher: Carl Jones
Level: Intermediate – Advanced
In this combination skill-level class we’ll focus on using basic concepts and small 2-string “shapes” to quickly make the mandolin fingerboard much more accessible and less of a mysterious “maze.” Insights into scale sections, harmonized scales, and the eye-opening “slants” and “reaches” (chords) will be demonstrated. This will make it easier and more fun to learn a great old-time tune and a bit of song back-up as well. I will aim at intermediate level students but beginners are more than welcome and usually benefit greatly. Advanced players usually enjoy this class too and can get a few new ideas and tricks to put up their sleeves. Participants are welcome to video-tape and encouraged to bring a recording device.
