Scruggs to Melodic Online Workshops

Learn how to blend bluegrass banjo styles for two different traditional songs in two separate online workshops. Hosted by Bennett Sullivan and Banjo by Ear, these workshops will give you valuable insight for broadening your technique and voice on the banjo. 

Four arrangements to common bluegrass tunes

The goal of these classes is to help you understand how to introduce melodic style into your banjo playing by dissecting the similarities and differences between Scruggs and Melodic versions of the same song. Each class will go over one song from the standard bluegrass repertoire and you'll get two tabs for each of the songs - one Scruggs and one melodic. As a bonus, we'll also talk about some backup techniques and vocabulary so you leave class inspired and with plenty to work on.

What a class ticket gets you:

  • Access to one or two 60-minute online classes (October 3rd at 8pm EST and/or Oct 17th at 8pm EST)
  • Lifetime access to the recording of the live class
  • Tablature PDF downloads

"“I continually go back to the Master Classes and re-listen to them. They are so dense that I always pick up new bits, or if it's been a while my perspective has changed and there is more to mine. They are solid gold.”"

"“Bennett, thanks for the tremendous backup webinar. The presenters were excellent. Having 3 different approaches was fantastic. I did enjoy how Kristin’s lesson led right into Tom’s and complimented each other. Like you I was very interested in Kristin's level 1, 2 and 3 idea. For me she hit the nail head.”"
