Workshops by LWM
LIVE GROUP INSTRUCTION
Lessons With Marcel is now offering workshops via Zoom to cover all kinds of topics including right hand technique, improvisation, arranging, rhythm, playing in a group, etc. You’ll see everything taught on the YouTube channel in more detail and in a space where questions can be asked live and instructor feedback can be given. The workshops will be hosted by Marcel Ardans, Mickey Abraham and Andy Hatfield, and we’ll often bring in special guests (which will likely include some big names)!
We love the community that’s been growing on the LWM Discord, the YouTube live streams, and of course the group jams with the Bluegrass Coalition. We want to keep creating educational content and keep creating online spaces for flatpickers and other bluegrass musicians to hang out and one way to do that is with workshops.
(Remember, Zoom workshops come with follow-up recordings and learning materials.)

Ever tried to figure out one of your favorite Spacegrass classics like “Devlin” or “Neon Tetra,” but got left in the dust on the first chord? Never fear – in this workshop, Hayes Griffin will explain the concept of chord extensions (9, 11, 13) and show you how Tony Rice uses them to get his signature New Acoustic rhythm sound.

We've got answers
Each workshop will be different, sometimes you might be in a small group where interaction is key. With more than five people in a call it’s probably not the best idea to leave yourself unmuted though. Remember to use Zoom’s “raise hand’ feature to not interrupt mid-lesson.
In other workshops you might find yourself in a large group where interaction might be difficult, we plan on structuring these larger calls more like a lecture. Hold you questions until the end and we’ll have a dedicated Q&A session before the workshop ends.
The night before each workshop we’ll send out an email to all participants from our mailing list service, this means it’s crucial to be accurate when typing your email address when signing up for the workshop. If you do not get the email in your inbox, please be sure to check your spam folders too.
