Why is the intermediate mandolin for Wreck of the Old 97, a link to the fishers hornpipe?

Hey all – I’m excited to join this spring! New to the lessons and forums, so sorry if this is a dumb question. For some of the beginner songs like Cripple Creek and You Are My Sunshine, the “beginner” and “slides” versions are slightly different. I’m assuming we should focus on the more advanced slides versions for the camp?

Hey Clay. Great question! I went to camp for the first time last year. I remember the advise of not worrying about playing solos but knowing chord progressions of the songs. Being one who played note for note from tablature I really didn’t fully appreciate what that really meant until I got to camp. I’d say enjoy learning the tablature that you can play solidly but also consider practicing “hearing” the chord progressions to be able to play “backup” for each song (whether strumming on guitar, vamping on banjo, etc.) as that will be of benefit as well. Hope this helps! It is truly a great (and no pressure)camp experience.

Hi Clay! Welcome to the board!

Stuart pretty much summed it up. If you can’t learn anything else, learn the chord progression to each song in the list. That way you’ll be able to sit in on the nightly jam sessions. Once you’re comfortable with the chords, work on a few lead parts. It’s no secret any more, so it’s OK to mention here… you’ll be put in a band with other folks and will be playing in front of an audience, so the more leads you know, the more likely you’ll be to have a lead you can play.

Thanks all! That sounds great :blush: I’m starting to work through the list and the added motivation of having to play in front of people will keep me practicing over the holidays!
