Bluegrass guitar lessons


25 per session - Virtual OK

I can provide online or in-person bluegrass guitar lessons - backup, lead playing, technique, etc - or even just consultation and guidance regarding how to approach bluegrass music, what it is, where to find source repertoire, events, jam etiquette and the nuances of the subculture. Open to trades of various types, and the simbi price may vary according to the nature and duration of the lesson.

Training & Qualifications

I've been playing and teaching bluegrass mandolin and guitar for nearly 20 years, and have taught at many festivals and camps throughout the US and Canada, including Sorrento, Kaufman Kamp, Bluegrass by the Beach, and various CBA bluegrass camps.

Availability & Preferences

Prefer weekdays/eves, and I'm in the Pacific timezone

Trading Preference: I’m flexible, just hit me up!

Bluegrass mandolin
I'm always trying to learn new instruments and musical styles, and cash seems a crass currency for art. Also, as a newbi, presently just curious to see what may evolve out of it.
