Eric will get you started right on the mandolin path. We'll learn easy, fun tunes that will build your technical skills, giving your left hand an understanding of the fingerboard, and your right hand the tools for good tone, time, and tremolo.

Flatpicker Eric Thompson has been a fixture of the Bay Area acoustic music scene for half a century. While most noted for his guitar work, he's brought his strong, soulful mandolin picking to a wide stylistic array of bands, including Blue Flame Stringband, Bluegrass Intentions, and Todalo Shakers. Much to his delight, these last two years he's been on the faculty of David Grisman and Mike Marshall's Mandolin Symposium in Santa Cruz.
