    When I saw Angelo in Montreal his English was not bad. I'm gonna try to relearn a little french though... I wonder how Angelo will do the class. I'm not planning to go to his class as I'm more of an intermediate level player. But it will be great to listen to him sitting around jamming.

    William Brunard tells me the same thing about Angelo...that his English is better than most expect. His son Raangy, by contrast, will need some help with translation in his rhythm classes, so we'll make sure he's got that.

    I think your hit on how to best take advantage of having them around is spot on...

    Cheers,

    As wonderful a player as Angelo is, I don't think he'd be my first choice as an instructor.

    Maybe I'm weird, but I'd like to just sit there and soak up, say Tcha Limburger's or Rino van H's thoughts on music...

    But if Angelo's workshops (or anybody else's, for that matter) are deluged with participants, I think it might work to try a first-class-second-class kind of thing...

    Imagine that the instructor's got seven or eight extra-fine players sitting near him in the first circle of the room with their guitars, and behind the first circle are lots of empty chairs for guitarless spectators (e.g. yours truly ) who can watch from the cheap seats...

    Have you ever tried something along those lines, Andrew?
    I live in a little tourist town called Niagara-On-The-Lake, Ontario, Canada, which is about twenty miles north of Niagara Falls.

    If you are ever planning on visiting the beautiful Niagara area, feel free to PM me and perhaps we can get together and do some jamming.

    That's exactly what we're proposing, in fact. We've always suggested this approach for people who want some exposure to a teacher who's working at a level that is too challenging, but with Angelo on board this year we're planning on creating this "observer" space very intentionally. I want our most skilled participants to have the opportunity to work with him at their level, but folks will be welcome to sit in as observers if they think that's a good use of their time.

  • For the record, no one person's experience at the camp is more important than any others.

    Hope to see you all again this year.

    True enough, Jim...hope to see you, too!

    Very interesting. This must explain the very eclectic line up of artists.
    Thanks for solving the mystery Jim.
