Hey Taborgrassers! 

Taborgrass is on for this Saturday 11/19! Details below, hope to see you there!
Two quick notes: 

Jamming: We had a miscommunication with Waverly, and may or may not have a room available for jamming this Saturday. We'll keep you updated, sit tight!
 
Email:We've been experiencing problems with our email newlsetter, and it sounds like folks haven't been getting Taborgrass updates via email. We're working on it, but it's best to check the website or facebook page for the time being!

Thanks!

About

Song Class 
This class is all about how to learn and jam on bluegrass songs. We'll be walking you through some bluegrass classics, working on their chord progressions, melodies, and lyrics. The focus will be on giving you new songs to call at a jam.

Tune Class
This class is all about fiddle tunes! We'll be learning some jam favorites from the bluegrass and old time repertoire, focusing on getting the melodies in our heads and the notes in our fingers. 

Jam Class
A whole class just for jamming! Here we'll be working on all the ins and outs of playing music with other people. We'll work on calling songs, taking breaks, listening in, and communicating with your fellow jammers. Bring a song or tune to call!

Taborgrass Update

 Hey Taborgrassers!

Our Omicron-hiatus from Taborgrass has carried us into the time of year when Taborgrass usually wraps up until Fall. Kaden's about to head out on the road with his band for the summer, so we're taking stock and seeing if there's some Taborgrass happenings we can keep running through the Summer. As soon as we've got something figured out, it'll be posted here and sent out in the newsletter. 

Thanks for picking, hope to see you soon!
-Patrick and Kaden
