The Elk Grove Village, Illinois Spring Banjo Camp met on Sunday, March 10 in the home of Jane & Richard Sloger. 

In the two-hour session, MD presented several songs, including Roll in My Sweet Baby's Arms, I'm Sad and I'm Lonely, Jubilee  and Mole in the Ground, based on the playing of the late Fleming Brown.

Musical concepts covered included finding chord tones, and using them to improvise a solo, playing melody by ear, identifying notes on the fretboard, two-finger picking, up-picking, keys and capos, open G tuning, double C tuning and single C tuning. The Slogers provided some very wonderful snacks and refreshments.
