Who is it for?
Jim Penson's Bluegrass Jam Camp is for anyone who is new to bluegrass jamming. If you are a beginner and have never played in jams, or have learned some songs, know your way around the instrument, but just not played with anyone yet, it's for you.
  1. 1) Know three chords- G, C, and D
  2. 2) Know how to tune your instrument
  3. 3) Know how to keep time.

Notice that no where in the requirements does it say anything about level of skill, specific song knowledge, knowledge of licks, tags, or anything else. If you can tune your instrument, play these three chords, and do a basic strum or roll pattern in time, you're ready to start playing with others.
