GFW Playing Together – Monday Slow Session and Wednesday Warm Up
5-String Banjo - with Garry McFadden
Due To Popular demand this class runs on 2 nights each week
These classes are aimed at BEGINNER and INTERMEDIATE level 5-string banjo.
As the 5-string banjo is primarily an American instrument, Garry will teach "Scruggs" (‘Duelling Banjos’ /‘Foggy Mountain Breakdown) style. Though the classes are aimed at primarily Scruggs style, they will look at melodic "Keith" style, single-string "Reno" style and a 5-string approach to Celtic traditional tunes.
The classes will be fun and informative. (Guitarists may find banjo easy to adapt to - there are some similarities between the instruments).
Monday night classes will be more suited to beginner level
Wednesday night classes will be aimed at intermediate level.
Online Times and rates - Zoom Classes are 7-7:30pm, 15 min break then 7:45-8:15pm.
Prices for the 1 hour class are £50 adult and £40 concession.
