Don Julin is back with a whole new workshop for mandolin players of any skill level! We've had the pleasure of hosting Don's workshops many times over the years and are thrilled to be presenting another focused on right hand picking techniques. Everything from holding the pick, right hand position for picking and strumming, alternate picking, tremolo, cross-picking, jig-picking and the most important of all - developing tone. Join us Tuesday, May 10th at 7pm for what's sure to be another fantastic workshop from Don. Don Julin, author of the best-selling Mandolin For Dummies (Wiley 2012), is regarded as one of the most eclectic mandolin players and top mandolin instructors on the scene today.
