Old-Time Mandolin Workshop with Carl Jones

January 21, 2017 : 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Join us Saturday at 3:00 pm for an old-time mandolin workshop with instructor Carl Jones. Cost is $25.00.

In this workshop we will learn some of my favorite fiddle tunes in different keys on the mandolin! My goal is to explore the nuances of pick technique aiming for better control, dynamics, sustain, and a solid driving pulse that would make any listener want to start dancing.  Then we will explore different ways to accompany the same tunes utilizing the mandolin’s many strong points.  Our goal is to have everyone comfortably going back and forth from melody to back up and as a result having more fun being creative as they are picking.
