Melodic Style Banjo with Bill Evans
San Francisco Bluegrass & Old-Time Festival Workshop

Melodic style banjo is a three-finger bluegrass banjo technique that relies upon scales rather than rolls and offers an exciting, contemporary complement to Scruggs style. Melodic style allows you to play fiddle tunes note-for-note and also opens up improv possibilities. In this workshop designed for players with one or more years of experience, Bill Evans unlocks the secret of understanding melodic style, showing its application in different keys, how its used up and down the neck and can be combined with Scruggs style. Tab examples will be presented and video/audio recording is encouraged.

San Francisco Bay Area musician and Virginia native Bill Evans has been involved with bluegrass music and the banjo for over twenty-five years as a player, teacher, writer and historian. He occupies a unique niche in the banjo world: celebrated worldwide for his traditional and progressive bluegrass banjo styles and his innovative original compositions, he also enjoys a reputation as an
outstanding instructor and an expert player of 19th century minstrel and classic/parlor banjo styles. He authored the  Banjo for Dummies, and since its release in 2007, it has become the largest selling banjo book in the world. More on Bill at
