“Tricks to train your ear and make you sound better
 than you really are!"

Friday, July 6th
  * The day before TX State Guitar Championships

TIME / Location:
3:30pm-8pm at Pearl Bluegrass Jam & Stage Show

$25 for 4-hour Workshop with free supper included

Open to all ages and skill levels

Learn how to play better by ear with Redneck Ear Training and Redneck Music Theory. Besides learning some great tunes the workshop will help you pick out songs by ear. You will learn how to fake almost any song just by knowing the chords.

Learn standard intros and licks that fit almost anywhere.  We will go over harmonized scales and arpeggios to dress up your playing.  Yes, there is life above the fifth fret!

The workshop will help it all seem less mysterious.  You will learn skills to survive in jams and in bands.
