CRN : 11274-241
« back to classes page

Are you a beginning or intermediate player of bluegrass music and want to begin playing with others, but haven’t found a jam that plays at your speed and/or skill level? If so, this is a class for you. This class will focus on songs that are often played in bluegrass jams. Students will be able to select and practice songs that will be played before each session. This class will cover various aspects of jamming such as: playing through mistakes, using chord structure to play (fake) leads and backup to songs you don’t know, responsibilities of someone who leads a song in a jam, singing even if you don’t sing, among other topics.

NOTE: Students must provide their own instrument for the class. Students must also have at least a beginner level knowledge of their instrument and be able to play the major chords along with the following: Am, D7th, and Em. Most songs will be played at speeds between 70 - 90 BPM.  Students of all ages are encouraged to enroll.
