Scruggs style is the most common style of playing the banjo in bluegrass music. It is a fingerpicking method, also known as three-finger style. It is named after Earl Scruggs, whose innovative approach and technical mastery of the instrument have influenced generations of bluegrass banjoists ever since he was first recorded in 1946. In this class we will be learning tunes and techniques from the essential Flatt And Scruggs Mercury sessions period.
Melody, Backup, Roll patterns in the Scruggs style will all be covered in depth. Novara has transcribed over a hundred Scruggs style banjo breaks/backup and is exited to bring this limited session class to the Folk School. All forms of recording are welcome.
