Hi Fiddling Friends,
I'll be teaching this material at a free, hands-on workshop at the Joe Val Festival (Framingham, MA) on Sunday, Feb 19, at 11AM.
At the workshop, I'll have a live guitarist/singer, and will be teaching these techniques in the context of common BG songs (Roll In My Sweet Baby's Arms, All the Good Times Are Past and Gone, etc.) in different keys.
Even if you won't be there, I thought this handout might be useful. It shows how I think about some of the techniques that may be used in combination to sound more bluegrassy.
Let me know what you think!
P.S. Also a workshop teaching Orange Blossom Special at 5PM on Saturday, Feb 18, at 5PM.
P.P.S. There will be 300+ workshops at Fiddle Hell Massachusetts (Nov. 3-5, 2017) - make plans to join us for the weekend.
