Mike, what is the trick to knowing which chord to vamp when in a jam session? Is the idea to watch the guitar player and see what chord they are playing in any particular song and that would tell you, as the banjo player, which chord to vamp? If that is so, then doesn’t it mean that you need to know by sight how guitar players form a C chord or an F or D chord on their instruments?
Do I have this right?
