July 4th Cabin Camp Side Jam

Hey folks! Just returned from the absolute best ever weekend of learning and playing music, meeting a bunch of wonderful folks, and even getting wayyy outta my own comfort zone which was a great learning experience in its self! Thank you so much @BanjoBen - Ben “& Family & Friends & Company” for the most memorable weekend ever! As @Scottie said in his post I cant remember all the names, but I am truly Thankful and Appreciate all that yall have done for us campers :blush::purple_heart:!!

It was a little difficult to capture video since we all were picking and learning and such. However I did manage to get a short clip of @Dragonslayer and @Michael_Mark picking in between events and they’ve both given me permission to post this here. Hope yall enjoy it, I sure did, great job guys!!

It was great to meet you too, Simone! Nice to finally put a face with the mandolin in your profile pic. And hey! You get to say you taught me how to properly handle a 5 beat measure. :laughing:

It was very nice to meet you as well, @Simone. And if anyone is intimidated by @Dragonslayer and @Michael_Mark ‘s talent, join the crowd. You don’t have to be at that level of talent to enjoy camp, by the way. :blush:
