GorgeGrass this Weekend!

Hope to see everyone out at Stevenson this weekend for GorgeGrass. Beginners look for the "Turtlegrass" banner for the slow jam.

This is the largest festival of the year in this area. Lots of national acts on the big stage, a beer garden, a dance hall, workshops, food and instrument vendors.

The view of the gorge from this location in the fairgrounds is spectacular - plus there is a sizable pond for canoeing or kayaking.

Reservations for big RVs and camping need to be made well in advance. It's windy folks. Stake all your stuff down, including the kids and dogs. My 10X10 canopy was half way to Idaho before I caught up to it a few years back.

Use Your Metronome!

Make yourself accountable when there is just you at practice time.

I’ve added new worksheets to our Music page, called Taborgrass: Use Your Metronome and Taborgrass Speed Sheet, so you can record your own times and gradually increase your playing speed.

Have fun!
