TitleLearning to play in the C chord and D chord positions on the Banjo
DaysMWF (week 2), July 24–28
Instructor(s)Tom Adams
Slots (taken)15 (3)
LocationUCPC Sunday School Room 1
DescriptionWith the banjo tuned to an Open G chord for 3-finger style bluegrass picking, playing tunes in the Key of G offers quite the safety net of open strings, and it’s the Key of G where a lot of pickers are most comfortable. Playing in the C chord and D chord positions bring new challenges to the player, and those new Keys can seem mysterious and unwieldy. But singers sing in all Keys. So, to fully enjoy the jamming experience, we’ll take what you already know about playing in G and translate those rolls and licks to make you a solid picker in C and D.
