Prerequisite: The ability to play some simple tunes would be foremost among the requirements for this class. This would imply some familiarity with the fingerboard in the first position as well as knowledge of a few simple chords to accompany these tunes.
Style: We’ll concentrate primarily on learning more tunes from the old-time fiddle repertoire using different keys to illustrate concepts concerning position, technique and execution. Supporting exercises and some very basic music theory will also be presented to provide a strong footing for advanced beginners to raise their playing to the next level.
