The Handmade Music School, along with The Floyd Country Store, is excited to announce the Floyd County Old Time Music Get-Together at the beautiful EcoVillage in Floyd County, Virginia! The camp offers intermediate and advanced classes in fiddle, banjo, mandolin, guitar, bass, singing, and dance. Afternoon sessions will feature presentations and workshops with visiting masters, and evenings will offer square-dancing, concerts, and lots of tune-playing opportunities.
This upright bass workshop will emphasize providing a solid rhythm for jams and band settings. Participants will get to practice good left and right hand techniques while familiarizing themselves with the finger board. Sure there’s gonna be lots of 1-5 but we’ll work on incorporating and understanding bass runs too!
