Pegram, Tenn. — The Musical Heritage Center of Middle Tennessee is proud to host a Matt Flinner mandolin workshop open to players of all ability levels on February 7, 2009 from 1:00 - 4:00 p.m. at the Fiddle & Pick, 456 Highway 70 in Pegram.

Topics will include new approaches to rhythm playing. Matt will share a few standard bluegrass songs and examine different ways of playing rhythm behind them. Use of various chord forms, double stops and linear motion across chord progressions will be discussed.

A plethora of fills & licks: standard and not-so-standard fills and licks to use on standard and not-so-standard bluegrass songs. Emphasis will be on immediate practical use (e.g. in jam sessions), and many examples from Monroe style to jazzier licks will be given. We'll also apply these ideas in several keys to help improve your knowledge of the fingerboard.

Also, two new tunes you've never (possibly) heard before but should know.

There is a $50.00 registration fee and limited space and early reservations are strongly recommended.

Fiddle and Pick, founded by music educator Gretchen Priest-May is a place where people old and young can come to discover the joy found in making traditional music, mainly, but not limited to, fiddles, banjos, mandolins, guitars and similar instruments, and in particular, music played in the Middle Tennessee region throughout its history.
