Intermediate Old Time & Bluegrass Mandolin w/ Erik Thompson

Mondays, 8:30-9:45 pm, beginning November 5
$120.00 advance / $130.00 after October 29

In the context of exciting, engaging melodies, we'll explore double stops, position shifts up the neck, chord voicing choices, and cross-picking patterns, as well as ideas and approaches for improvisation.

Flatpicker Eric Thompson has been a fixture of the Bay Area acoustic music scene for half a century. While most noted for his guitar work, he's brought his strong, soulful mandolin picking to a wide stylistic array of bands, including Blue Flame Stringband, Bluegrass Intentions, and Todalo Shakers. Much to his delight, these last two years he's been on the faculty of David Grisman and Mike Marshall's Mandolin Symposium in Santa Cruz.
