Simple fiddle tunes are a great starting point. As players mature as musicians, they can layer new techniques on these bare bones melodies. In old-time fiddling, a combination of bowing patterns, drones, and slides brings vibrancy and rhythmic groove to tunes. This workshop will demonstrate these techniques and help you to experience them hands-on with easy melody lines and exercises, presented with an epic handout that takes out the guesswork. Improve your understanding and your playing skills, so you can go deeper with fiddle tunes!
