We’ll explore some approaches to some classic songs and tunes, looking at the defining licks and working on some leads and backup. 


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. He has also been on the faculty of David Grisman and Mike Marshall's Mandolin Symposium in Santa Cruz.
