- Hands-on learning in large and small groups
- How to play lead, fake solos, sing harmony
- Group and individualized instruction on backup techniques.
- Ground rules and etiquette; learn many bluegrass standards,
- In over 60 camps, we've taught hundreds to jam. You can too!
How you qualify:
It's easier than you may think!
If you play guitar, mandolin, banjo, fiddle, bass, or resonator guitar you can be part of a bluegrass jam.
Only requirements: You must be able to tune your instrument (electronic tuning devices welcome) and change smoothly between G, C, D, and A. Fast playing is not expected, nor is the ability to solo required.
Comments from recent jam campers:
"I have been waiting to start playing real bluegrass with people for quite a while, and now I can."
"It's been three weeks, but I'm still on a high from your Bluegrass Jam Camp in Gettysburg. To put it mildly -- it was absolutely fantastic! My banjo playing has improved immeasurably since Camp -- even my wife has noticed. I am now actively looking for other jammers."
"One of the best experiences in or out of music I have ever had!"
"I had a great time, learned a lot, met great people.. The best week of my whole year!"
"It was exactly what I needed. I will now have the courage to actually take my banjo with me to jam sessions instead of just hanging around listening."
"An incredible experience... a depth of knowledge on the subject beyond just technique, including the history, etiquette, and flavor of the genre."
