Here it is, your chance to spend 3 days with TR as your guitar instructor. My understanding is that there are only 9-11 slots for this seminar so don't put off deciding, you may miss out.

The fur peace ranch is not a fantasy camp, but a guitar players oasis within an award winning music community with instruction in various guitar styles, bass guitar, songwriting, mandolin, vocals and more.

Hosted by Rock & Roll Hall of Famer Jorma Kaukonen and his wife Vanessa, the Ranch is nestled in the tranquil setting of the rolling foothills of Southeast Ohio. Jorma’s years of playing with Jefferson Airplane and Hot Tuna as well as his long tenure and love for teaching has earned him a lofty position among his contemporaries. In addition to teaching guitar classes, Jorma has been a beacon for attracting an impressive roster o f master musicians and teachers. As well as students who come to the Ranch throughout the year to immerse in what has become a truly unique and magical environment.

Our workshops class size is limited (about 10 students per class) which allows for a personal, up-close teaching experience with a renowned faculty of musical instructors. Excellent instruction, gourmet food, campfire jams, live concerts and camaraderie come together to make your stay an experience you will remember for a lifetime! Whether you are a seasoned professional or novice the Ranch has a spot for you on our 119 acres of natural beauty cradled in warmth of our hospitality. So get online, get your guitar, and get on down here and join me.

Jorma Kaukonen's Fur Peace Ranch 03/27/2009-03/30/2009

Tim Reynolds Workshop Description:

Coming Full Circle with the Acoustic Guitar

The monkey will switch on it's monkey, shake it's monkey, beat on it's monkey & make a number of mysterious gestures. After this, it will confuse itself in an attempt at inter-species communication. You are welcome to take notes. Translation: 6 & 12 string acoustic fingerstyle, flat-picking & composition. Performing original material as a springboard to teach individual techniques of each composition. Taking students thru the ideas and feelings of each song.

3 Sessions Per Day

HOLY F'ING CRAP! THIS IS THE GREATEST THING EVER!!!

Unfortunately...$1,200 is a bit too rich for my blood. Plus I'd have to buy a ticket to get out there.

I'm going to shoot myself in the face for not being able to go to this...

How good do you have to be at guitar to not be laughed at? Is a few years experience and the ability to play a few covers good enough?

Nevermind:

Level 3 - Proficient: Repertoire and Skillbuilding

Participants should have facility with thumb independence with alternating thumb pattern accompanied by melodic lines; experience with songs that depart from pattern fingerpicking; acquaintance with chord inversions in several positions up the neck. The workshop will further develop these skills, and use songs as vehicles for teaching licks, riffs,runs and embellishments in various keys. The instructor will break down songs, but assume a level of skill permitting a brisk pace.

I think I might actually sign up. It's in Ohio right? Then again after reading Greenmile's last post I may look incredibly retarded amongst others there.

a.) thumb independence with alternating thumb pattern accompanied by melodic lines - if you can play, or partially play any of Tims solo acoustic stuff this shouldn't be that huge a deal. watch some videos and practice.

http://www.maxguitartab.com/text/sandman.txt

this is a really simple example of this. remember you're going in a student you are supposed to learn stuff.

b.) experience with songs that depart from pattern fingerpicking

sounds like knowing how to improv decently to me.

c.) acquaintance with chord inversions in several positions up the neck.

you probably already know them, just read up on them online or something.

these 3 things are that hard to grasp once you get the basic concept and that's all they're requiring. they want to TEACH you stuff haha. just my thoughts on it. in one hand you could take a class, maybe not be the best in the class but have it be one of the most amazing musically inspiring experiences of your life as a musician or in the other hand you could not go and never know what you could have learned.

seems like a simple choice if you love to play guitar.

I'm sure I wouldn't be embarrassed or too out of my element, and it sounds like a pretty cool thing overall. I'm seriously considering this. Any other takers from this site?

Just sent in my application, so as long as I'm "accepted" we'll have at least one person representing the board there.

Anyone else going or on the fence? I'll need someone to hang out with people.

I'm still on the fence. I'm not sure if I'm skilled enough technically or not to take this on.

it's a 100dollars a month for a class with all the bullshit taken out, taught by one of your favorite guitarists. ask your parents for a loan. haha. I think just the insight of talking to someone who inspires you or listening to them for 4 days alone is going to open doors you never dreamed about and validate a lot of shit. I think anyone of the fence should just do it because you want to. you can always make more money.

My issue isn't the $$, but the fact that the site's "skill level" is making me doubt myself technically and I'd really rather not look like a tool in front of Tim and other guitarists.

Okay, so after mulling it over all day at work I just applied as well. After reading the questions on the actual application I don't think my fears of being inadequate were warranted.

Any other takers? It would be great if we had a group from the boards there!

By the way, for anyone still on the fence, they only charge you $185 to reserve your space. The remaining balance, $1015, is charged the week that you go to the ranch. That gives you 7 months to save up. So as GreenGrow said, divide it out over the months and it's not that bad, about $145/mo after the initial deposit.

Yeah, I just signed up yesterday and haven't even heard if I'm in or not, but I'm already looking forward to it. It will give me something to talk about for years afterwards.

I wonder if anyone from the DMB side of things will get wind and sign up for this.

I would love for my husband to do this! He has played since he was 12 (he's around Tim's age now), but doesn't read music. He's had no formal training - only session and jams with his dad when he was a kid. I think he played in a band in HS too. He picks up things by ear and plays some original stuff. He does some amazing finger picking and plays a wide variety of chords that sound pretty complex to me. He has a lot of respect for Tim's playing and I have no doubt he'd learn a lot!

I read the text about the proficiency level posted here but not being a musician I have no idea how to interpret it. I hope this isn't a stupid question but do you think ability to read music will be necessary? He knows how to read the notes from the page, and the chords, he just generally doesn't play that way.

Any insights would be appreciated.

I didn't get the impression that the ability to read music would be required. You might want to contact them before committing though.

I submitted my application thing last week and it didn't say anything about reading music. They had questions on it about your guitar skill/knowledge, but nothing about reading music. I can't read music but I don't think that makes me any less of a musician. Some might argue that those who can play and improvise without reading music are more talented than those who can sight-read a piece of music.

By the way, can Tim even read music?

I would tend to agree since I think my husband is an amazing guitar player!

Thanks for the clarifications.

Yeah, I didn't get the impression that it was necessary. I'm assuming it's all "watch me do something and then do it yourself" type instruction. I doubt Tim's songs (or whatever he's teaching us) will be transposed in standard music notation and we'll all sit and sight read.

By the way, Silky, have you heard from the Ranch yet? I haven't gotten anything after my initial confirmation email.

Nope same here... I think it said it takes 2-3 weeks for them to process everything so I suspect it will still be a little while.

Talked with Fur Peace Ranch today and apparently there are only a few spots left. I am getting ready to make an announcement to the email list about this as well and wanted to give message board users another chance to get in on it before the spots are filled. So glad to see folks from the message board taking advantage of this rare opportunity. I am very envious myself and wish I played guitar so I could attend. I imagine it will be very kewl to hang out with TR for 3 days and discuss music and his playing.

Peace & Keep the Faith

Wow, hearing that there are only a few spots left really makes me glad I decided to jump at this chance. I know I would have kicked myself if I didn't take advantage of this opportunity.

Here's counting the days and weeks until March, '09!

Last I heard, which was about 2 weeks ago, there were only 4 or 5 slots left. Get in while you can. Who knows when or if this opportunity will present itself again.

I just read this today, and I am seriously tempted into filling a remaining spot. I just gotta wait till by next paycheck. So hopefully it will still be open. Its pretty cool that Tim is doing this, it's even more cool, that a group from the forum will be attending... I let you guys know what happens.

I'm almost there...

So I decided I couldn't wait and risk missing my chance and signed up. It's exciting! The website said it was still open, so I hope that is accurate. It will would be interesting to meet other board members. Maybe have a jam or two? Although, I don't drink a lot, it would be nice to have a beer with you guys. Let me know Fluffy if you hear anything on there end as far as enrollment numbers go (I'm sure you would anyways).

I'm glad you decided to go for it!

The website says that FPR is completely alcohol/drug free, but I'm planning on heading to Ohio on Thursday and getting a hotel, then driving the ranch on Friday morning. I'd love to meet up for a couple beers or maybe dinner or something if anyone else is game. We have plenty of time to sort out all the details if we'd want to do something like that.

Well, my card was charged on 8/22 for the deposit. I'm assuming that's a good thing, but I haven't received a confirmation e-mail...

I sent in my application to and called the fur peace ranch to confirm that I was able to get in. I am really excited about this! I know how to read very little music from taking music classes in college but still can't put it all to guitar, but even being able to just sit in and listen and take it all in truly seems priceless. I am stoked to be able to experience this...then an acoustic show at the end?!?!? Too good to be true. Thanks again Fluffy for telling me about this. Hope you make it out too.

You know...I'm actually kind of releived now.

I wanted to go SO BAD...but I couldn't afford it.

Now I don't have to worry about it anymore.

I'm jealous for all of you that are going!

Have a blast and learn a lot.

And share as many stories as possible...

Likewise. Those of us going should definitely try to get together the day before. I'm driving all the way from Iowa so I'm not sure exactly where I'll stay the night before. Columbus is about 2 hours from FPR I think, so I was thinking of staying there and then driving the rest on Friday morning. But I haven't really looked too much into if there is somewhere closer I could stay.

I did not get invoiced yet....still, so i called again and am in for sure. Even though the class thing says full on their site he said there was still room in there for 1 or 2 more, so IF anyone else is serious from the board I would hop on that opprotunity. It sounds like it is going to be unreal. I am down to go out for a few beers the night before. I am glad there is going to be quite a few members from this board going.

So is everyone down with getting there a day early to have a meeting of the mutant minds? We could all pitch for a room or 2, I know Dave and I are down...

Not sure how much of a "group" thing you guys may or may not want to make this, but it seems as though it would make sense to all stay at the same hotel in either Columbus or Athens on Thursday night (for maximum debauchery efficiency) and then carpool to the ranch Friday morning.

I'd personally say get all the travel out of the way on Thursday and stay in Athens, that way it's just a hop over to the ranch Friday morning and we are free to enjoy ourselves Thursday night without having a 2 hour drive, plus whatever rush hour Columbus may have, at 7 a.m. Friday morning. Thoughts?

I am down for that, when we get everyone present, we'll try and pinpoint a location. I should have room in my car for one more, though I assume a lot of us will have cars seeing as we're coming from all over the damn place.

Well, there is the Meigs Motel which is about 7 miles south of the Camp, and then a host of hotels in Athens, OH, which is about 13 miles north. I don't care which, though we'll prolly have a better shot at shit to do or places to eat in Athens. Anyone care to weigh in?

Thanks, guy. You'll be paying for your own room then.

Let's get everyone going posting here, if possible, to see who's up for the early meet-up. Should I start a new thread for the discussion?

Found a couple hotels in Athens that look okay:

This one seems to be near some different restaurants and bars. Looks like about $100 for a night: http://www.baymontinns.com/Baymont/control/Booking/property_info?propertyId=70014&brandInfo=BU

There is also a Holiday Inn that looks to be about the same price: http://www.hixathens.com/index.html

I'd be willing to share a room with someone to split the cost of the room.

There were about half a dozen other hotels in Athens, but it's hard to know how far away they are from restaurants, bars, and other stuff to do. This sounds perfect though since it seems to be about 30 minutes from FPR.

You guys are gonna have SUCH an AWESOME time... I applied for and was accepted to his class, but had to really get honest with myself on my skill level... So... I withdrew, so that someone who was at level III (was hoping someone from here) could partake in this kickass class...

On the other hand...

I still want to go to the concert...So I bought 2 tickets to Tim's show on Saturday Night and am flying into Columbus around 3 pm on Saturday afternoon... With that in mind, I really want to see Tim with someone who can appreciate his musicianship and quality of his playing.. and it would be nice to actually put faces to everyone from the boards that will be there~! If one of you wants to show up at the Ranch, I'd be more than happy to share the extra ticket I have. Gnome44? In lieu of fiery meteorites...want to go? Let me know.

Thanks for the invite, Starry...but I'm going to have to pass. It's too hard for me to make the trek up to Ohio.

I'm still hoping for something catastrophic to occur so that I can live the rest of my life knowing that I made the right choice in not going.

(I'm kidding...obviously...somewhat...)

Seriously though, I'm supremely jealous of those that will attend. I'm sure you'll learn a ton and have a great time.

Strum one for me...

That's awesome! "Lies" is a great tune. I have so much more respect for her since her latest album...which I thought was genius. I like her better when she's not tip-tapping her guitar that whole time.

I'm going to try to finish up "Accordion Bells" in the next few weeks. I'm working on too many things at once...

It's funny when I say to people I know, "Hey, I'm going to a concert in March in Ohio" - I get, "OHIO???" Did I mention I live in LOS ANGELES...YEAH..I know~!!

But it's Tim Reynolds!!....Only you guys would understand...
Anyway, my Saturday will start @ 4 AM to get on a plane at 6 am.. connect in Dallas Texas at 1 pm...arrive Columbus @ 3..get a rent-a-car..and get to FPR...in time to take a nice nap.... and wake up at 6ish..to go to Concert at 7....then drive to columbus..then family on Sunday...then to airport with 2 frozen gallons of some serious home made apple cider to show these pansied-assed californians what a true glass of apple cider is...

Can't make the trek MY ASS~!!! Okay, okay..sorry...this happens every now and again, since I quit smoking...I really have to start exercising to prevent what began this sentence! LOL !!

Zimbabwe was probably the best setlist surprise ever because it never occurred to me to ask him to play it, but it's such a spectacular rendition.

So this is about 2 months away. Does anyone have any more input on the hotel choice? We should probably start booking unless any of you already has. Patrick if you want to share a room with me I can book it and you can just give me cash the day of.
