This hands-on approach will help you better understand and learn the mandolin fretboard, so you can play in all twelve keys, using seven different positions. You will learn easy-to- remember scale patterns, arpeggios, and use well known chord shapes to make your navigation smooth. Starting in familiar keys and positions, you will expand your playing territory to several more possibilities. Learn the whole fretboard once and for all! Printed materials will be handed out, audio recording is encouraged. Hands on workshop, bring your instruments! All levels welcome!
About Radim Zenkl
Mandolin player, composer and instructor. Originally from the Czech Republic, he discovered bluegrass by listening to records that were smuggled in to his communist country. Radim’s worldwide performing and teaching credentials include guest appearances at Berklee College of Music in Boston and the Sibelius Academy in Helsinki, Finland. Radim taught at the first, second and the most recent Mandolin Symposium and many other music camps. According to David Grisman: “Zenkl has re-invented the mandolin in several different ways.” He has been teaching online private lessons for the past five years, and last year launched his own school of online group mandolin classes. His first instructional DVD ‘Mandolin Primer’ was released on Homespun in November 2015.
