    Default Kaufman Kamp 2019--Who's Going? Need Advice?

    Kaufman Acoustic Kamp is coming up on June 16th. Who's coming?

    This year's Mandolin Team:

    Andrew Collins
    Andy Hatfield
    Bruce Graybill
    David Benedict
    Jordan Ramsey
    Tim Connell
    (and Nate Lee is teaching fiddle and Don Rigsby is teaching vocals--we'll forgive them!)

    Newbies--need advice on what to bring, what to do? Ask here!

    I'll be bringing some music from the Mandolin Orchestra of Kansas City to read. Kristin, Rob, and I usually organize one or two classical jams.

    This will be Year 10 for me--can't wait to get there and see everybody!

    Of note--three of our instructors are coming back this year as old married men: Andy Hatfield in October, Nate Lee in March, and David Benedict TODAY! Welcome to the club, guys!

    This was a great camp! I thought Kaufman's mandolin instructors were outstanding this year. I've been working on the chord substitution patterns from Tim Connell, as well as drilling closest chord shapes depending on the I chord"s root, as he suggested. I think Tim's class was solid gold. I also thoroughly enjoyed and learned much from Jordan Ramsey's class. I'm loving the Dempsey Young transcriptions, and I am drilling the tasty licks Jordan shared. The concerts were awe-inspiring, the jamming was hot, and the open mic scene was jumping. I do wish I had played some with Phil Vinyard and Brad and Rob and several others. See you next time.

    Hey y'all. Still enjoying the Kamp afterglow. Phil I think I may have picked a few with you on guitar in Beason, although I didn't catch your name. Were you playing an old Gibson A1?

    Annnnd I cam home from Kamp with a virus that I spent the next ten days getting over. Sheesh. The fiddle classes were excellent. Nate Lee drilled some chopping and other techniques that I need to work on. Bronwyn Keith-Hines worked us out in the key of B among other breaks. Kenny Kosek taught several classic breaks and a scordatura piece from Benny Thomasson. Good work all around which I will be playing away at for the next few months. R/
    I love hanging out with mandolin nerds . . . . . Thanks peeps ...
