Get your FREE TICKET here from Eventbrite! My goal for this workshop is to look into the early styles of old time fiddle music, and bluegrass and country mandolin styles. I will spend time talking about the basic right hand rhythm patterns and how they can be expanded to develop more complex rhythms.

I will start with some simpler tunes and then move onto more complex tunes. (more…)
