Intermediate mandolin and intermediate guitar are definitely the 2 most popular classes.  Based on recent years your chances for those are a bit less than 50/50...  But well worth the risk for the chance to spend the week with Ronnie McCoury and Mike Compton.   Thumbs Up

Good luck!    Cheers

Hmmm.  I also tried for intermediate Mando, with intermediate guitar as a backup.  Guess I shoulda picked a different instrument!  But I think I'll stick with the best one.

Personally, I think the academy is better then the show, but it's definitely a different vibe.
It's relaxed... Pick all the time, camping, not as many people... partying at night, but not all the time.

It's just a really cool vibe. Thursday afternoon is a treat watching the festes roll in... it's fun as hell, but from then on... it's ROCKYGRASS!!!!

Planet bluegrass is my favorite organization in the world.

I signed up for advanced gitter and intermediate bass.

For me, it's my favorite week of the year.

Just a heads-up...  Wave

We're still finishing up the processing of RockyGrass Academy lottery entries.  So I don't think we'll start processing any credit cards (or sending out notification emails) for another day or so...
