Don’t worry about it. Just download some bluegrass backing tracks off YouTube, and play along with them so that you get used to playing in time with other people. Oh and make sure you have a tuner. If you play in time and in tune and stay quiet when you are lost, you are 90% there (in any genre not just bluegrass).
The full Kiwigrass Academy is $150 which is an amazing bargain – just look at the tutor line-up. You will need to book accommodation separately at the Narrows Park.
It’s not school so you can wag if you want to, but if you miss an earlier class it’s bad form to hold up a later class with your questions about the stuff you missed.
Come on what do you think? Won’t a nice warm feeling be enough?
Of course not. We will encourage you to go for it, but if you’d rather not a shake of the head will be enough to leave you out of it. Or if they want a volunteer and you’re shy – just stare at the floor for a bit.
Welcome! We will be matching you as far as possible with players of similar levels and you will be in separate sessions from novices. Still, the spirit of Kiwigrass is to be generous and patient with novices, help them along a bit when you can.
