      Old-Time Banjo Workshops with Molly T. in Seattle

      Date: Saturday, October 8, 2005
      Time: All Day

      Beginning Old-Time Banjo
      Molly Tenenbaum
      Sat., October 8, 10:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m., $35 or $60 for both of
      the instructor�s workshops.
      Learn basic tuning and setting the right hand in motion for
      frailing or clawhammer style. Next, the class will apply that
      motion to a few songs and tunes. Gain tools you�ll need to
      pick up more songs and tunes in the future, and to explore the
      rhythms and movements that make the characteristic rolling,
      loping, galloping banjo sounds. (R)

      Old-Time Banjo Tunings
      Molly Tenenbaum
      Sat., October 8, 1:30-3:30 p.m., $35or $60 for both of the
      instructor�s workshops.
      Explore the many tunings that make the old time banjo sound
      light, rich, deep, spooky, moody, and sweet. Discuss how to tell
      by listening what tuning a piece is in, and consider a method of
      thinking about tunings in order to discover tunings and invent
      new ones. The class will learn one or two traditional tunes in
      detail, and briefly go over many others, with the goal of
      getting familiar with as many tunings as possible. In order to
      benefit most from this class, students should be able to frail
      comfortably at medium speed, and able to play simple tunes
      without stopping or looking at tablature.

      Held at Dusty Strings, 3406 Fremont Ave., Seattle. TEL.
