Looking to expand your soloing and improvisational vocabulary on mandolin or tenor banjo? In this four week workshop, we'll take a crash course into a number of improvisational approaches on the mandolin/tenor banjo across various styles beginning with country blues and New Orleans jazz, moving into jazz manouche, and onto the outer limits of free jazz/improv. Along the way we'll review a range of building blocks from pentatonic scales, modes, arpeggios, extended techniques, and more. Suitable for all curious-minded mandolin and tenor banjo players with at least an advanced beginner's understanding of instrumental basics. This sampler workshop will act as a jumping off point for further improvisational explorations in a number of directions.
