Intro to Jamming with Dave Zimmerman (Homespun Rowdy)
Getting into jamming can be an intimidating process until you realize that there are countless other pickers out there thinking the exact same thing. This workshop will take the form of a jam where well go around the circle calling out songs. We'll learn how to introduce the song to the group, run through chord changes, and even throw together a harmony. Youll learn how to keep the song moving by coordinating breaks, doing some simple arrangement on the fly and the standard signals and vocabulary for communicating these choices to the group. Bring a song youd like to sing or join the circle to strum along.

Dave Zimmerman plays mandolin for Homespun Rowdy and runs The Pick, a resource for bluegrass and acoustic-based music in the San Francisco Bay Area. The Pick offers a program called PickUp Bands where Dave assembles groups who work together for 8 weeks to develop a short opening set for a Bluegrass Monday Show at Amnesia. Hes also been an instructor for the Take the Stage program offered by the Freight & Salvage and runs the 3rd Monday Jam at Amnesia. More on Dave at
