When someone first picks up an instrument, the hope is: "Someday I'll be able to jam." But too often "the way in" is not clear. Memorizing someone else's solos is a dead end. People quit. It's time to get started playing real music -- with easy chords, gentle tempos, friendly people!
“I wish I had been introduced to this format much earlier. Isolated music is nowhere near as fun as being with a group.”
“Thank you for this life changing experience! It has made all the difference. It provided a giant boost in getting with other pickers and understanding the rules, goals, and culture of bluegrass jamming.”
Pete Wernick has taught thousands of closet pickers to jam with his time-tested method, and since 2010 his certified teachers have taught thousands more. At a Wernick Method class you’ll learn the ground rules of jamming, how to lead songs and “fake” breaks, find melodies and sing harmonies—all at gentle tempos in a supportive, low-pressure environment.
