This workshop is most appropriate for beginning to intermediate mandolin players. We will focus on producing a pleasing tone, while remaining relaxed, and, most importantly, having FUN. We will also look at the “care and feeding” of the mandolin, and touch a bit upon the history of the mandolin. People don’t remember how many notes you played; they remember if they sounded good, and if there was authentic feeling behind the notes. Workshop topics will also include: right hand techniques, left hand techniques, chords, strum patterns, simple songs, and soloing.
