  • Image 1 of OZARK FIDDLE GEMS WORKSHOP | MAY 18 3PM- SKU# BETSEELLIS-WORKSHOP : Product Type Events : Elderly Instruments
    Let’s dig into some lesser-known Ozark tunes to sweeten up our repertoire. You’ll learn the tunes by ear, and in particular, you’ll learn how the iconic elements of bowing inform the notes and phrasing in a tune. It’s a bit different approach than the “up-down” type of learning tunes: more focus on how the notes are made with both hands, rather than the left hand first and then the right. 

    Class level: Intermediate or beyond is ideal, but all are welcome. If you feel you are almost at intermediate level, you will get plenty out of this class too. You will be invited to record segments of the class for later review.
