Free Mandolin Clinic

Saturday, February 29th, 2020 from 2:00-4:00pm 

Free 2-hour clinic focusing on Simplified Mandolin Chords, Double-Stops, and Basic Improvising. This clinic is hands on so bring your instrument. All levels and abilities are welcome.

This workshop will introduce beginners to a new way of making a full range of simplified chords and double-stops which will facilitate building basic solos. Intermediates will learn how to use these double-stops in several key licks (with corresponding scales and intros) that easily become the basis for constructing solos in the keys of D, A, G, and C.

Our instructor will be Andy McCune.
Andy plays and teaches banjo, guitar, mandolin, and dobro. He performs with local bands Rusty Chops and Titan Valley Warheads.
