  • Skill Level:Early Intermediate (3)

Here are more great tunes and techniques from one of the foremost old-time fiddlers in the United States. Aimed at "advanced intermediate" players, Brad includes a brief review of the basic licks taught in his first lesson before quickly moving on to more advanced bowing patterns. You'll learn the "Tommy," "Melvin" and "Benton" licks (named in honor of master old-time fiddlers Tommy Jarrell, Melvin Wine and Benton Flippen), plus new phrasing licks, additional tunings, use of drone strings and double stops (including "rocking the bow") and ways to vary and substitute bowing patterns.

Brad's in-depth, step-by-step teaching of "Citico," "Breaking Up Christmas," "Johnny Don't Get Drunk," "Rocky Road to Dublin," "Little Maggie," "Boll Weevil," "Wagner," "Chicken Reel" and "Blackberry Blossom" will help you develop your repertoire of tunes and set you up for more advanced style and techniques. You'll get more enjoyment and a better sound from your old-time fiddling, too.
