    Did this some years ago, checking schedules now to see if time will allow another visit...hopefully so!

    I so wish I could go. Went for 2 years, then my work schedule changed. Such a fun time...

    Ok, I'm in, just registered. Another great benefit is to get Kimble and Duff to look over and tweak my mando and guitar setups. Don't get that chance too often down here. Sure looking forward to the jamming, probably what I love most.

    I'm in for another year. This will be my 3rd. Lots of great folks, and folks that actually can jam to Monroe tunes.

    Signed up this weekend. I'm a beginner, I know a few tunes and chords, but I'm really excited about diving in with both feet and soaking everything up that I can. Looking forward to meeting everyone!

    I like that Mike & Co. provided the official jam list so I can do my homework before the camp. Is everyone working on it? I think i have found most of the songs with my fave being Old Gray Mare Came Tearing Out Of The Wilderness, which gets my personal "best title" award.

    I was going to ask how well this Camp is setup for true beginners? Living in the Nashville area it seems like it should be a no-brainer to attend but I am still a bit intimidated by how much a noob I am.

    I think you would benefit from it Alan. Granted when you are starting out it all seems overwhelming but you have to start somewhere and just dig in. Monroe's style is full of advanced technique but surely you'd get an idea of the building blocks necessary for the traditional approach. If you decide to go be sure and ask lots of questions, both from the faculty and other students. Take notes and an audio or video recorder. There is a wealth of talent and knowledge that comes to this camp and most are more than eager to help. I play at an advanced intermediate level and some times will sit in the beginner classes. I always get something out of them no matter what level. It is an inspiring camp. Hope to see you there.

    Any Monroe-style-obsessed folks going to Grey Fox? Would be great to get a group together at some point and compare notes...a good warmup to camp perhaps!

    YES ME ME ME! My first time for GF, or any -big- fest, vacation finally all fell into place, and we're ending that week at GF, and staying at a nearby B&B. I surely need a big shot in the arm to start playing again, I've had other hobbies that took my time the last few weeks.

    Feel free to call or text me at 337-278-nine nine three eight.

    As a fellow beginner, I was a bit intimidated as well. But couldn't pass up the opportunity to go and learn at something like this that is literally just down the road. Hope to see you there!

    I just signed up for Monroe camp and am looking forward to it. I know maybe a quarter of the tunes on the jam list. Hoping some new techniques will sink in while I'm there. And looking forward to meeting other cafe-ers.

    I'm scheduled to arrive at BNA from LGA on Thursday at 1:19. I have car rental reservation. If you think you're on the same flight, or you're arriving close before me, I'd be comfortable with company. PM me.

    I think camp opens around 4:00 on Thursday, and Google tells me it will take about 40 min to get to Camp Marymount, so there might be some screwing-around time (maybe a stop at Carter's? A big delicious unhealthy lunch?)

    Regarding the concert at Carter on Saturday night. Will any participants be travelling out to watch this, or will everyone probably stay at camp to jam?

    Good question. It's listed on the Saturday schedule, so I think it's a "camp event." I plan to go.

    You'll want to go to the faculty concert. Then do some picking afterwards.

    Agreed, don't miss the concert, a lot of good moments in time happen at the show, there will be plenty of picking later that evening.

    Hey guys, just gave up my reservation at the Deerfield Inn if someone needs a hotel room for this Camp. (615) 799-4700, tell them Kevin sent you. I wish I could be there but the press of business says otherwise. There's always next year, right? Have fun, amigos.

    What a great weekend! It was great meeting and jamming, or trying to jam in my case, with everyone. Will definitely attend next year!

    This was my first time attending Monroe Mandolin Camp, and it was fantastic. My brain is full. Can't wait to see all my friends at the next one, and the next one, and...

    In addition to learning from the geniuses on the faculty, it was a real privilege to get to listen to the other great players at camp. What a monster group!
