Bellingham, WA – Workshop: Fancy Fiddling, Texas Style! @ B’ham Folk School
March 31 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Texas style fiddling is a combination of the old-time and Western swing genres. It is fancy, sassy, and totally fun. It uses a lot of:
- bluesy and jazzy sounds mixed in with the more traditional American old-time fiddle tune sounds
- fancy bowing
- double stops
- playing up and down the neck (mostly 1st, 3rd, and sometimes 2nd position)
- complex chord progressions for the guitar players
Come spend an afternoon exploring these Texas tunes!
This is the most advanced class I’ve ever taught in terms of technique. If you aren’t confident with double stops or shifting yet, great! Here’s a chance to work on them.
But if you’ve been playing for under two years, or don’t read sheet music, this class may be frustrating. Ask me if you’re not sure whether it’s a good fit for you.
