Our Clawhammer Banjo instructor Evie Ladin recently hosted a live Zoom workshop called “Practicing Syncopations for Songs and Tunes in D.” You can watch the video from this workshop above.
This workshop will give you good practice in aDADE tuning, on various rhythmic techniques, variations on melodies, and more, in the context of familiar old-time tunes. Evie’s teaching technique is helpful for opening up your playing to more improvisation and fluidity on the instrument, gaining confidence to play with others, and ideas for making your own playing more interesting.
We suggested a $25 donation for workshop attendees and we had a donation jar available at the event (and below if you’d like to donate now), but we want you to be able to enjoy the workshop regardless of your financial circumstances, so please feel free to donate what you’re able to.
And sign up for Evie’s Clawhammer Banjo course on Peghead Nation to keep learning after the workshop!
