Online Fiddle Lessons - Your source for Bluegrass, Old Time, Celtic, Gospel, and Country fiddle lessons.
Welcome to BluegrassDaddy.com. My goal is to provide the best fiddle instruction resource on the internet, at a very affordable price. I have over 25 years of experience both as a teacher and as a professional musician. This site is also a companion to my local fiddling outreach, which provides free instruction and performance opportunities to youth in the Blue Ridge mountains of North Carolina and eastern Tennessee.
With your subscription, you will have full access to all fiddle lessons. A typical fiddle lesson includes:
1) Fiddle tune title, genre, key, and skill level
2) A video of me demonstrating the fiddle tune.
3) High-quality fiddle tablature and sheet music
4) Measure-by-measure instruction
5) A slow play-through with a metronome
6) MP3 jam tracks with real instruments
7) Tune information and lyrics
Whether you are learning for the first time, augmenting your lessons, or searching for great tabs/notes and jam tracks, BluegrassDaddy.com is perfect for you. For a nominal fee of $6.95 per month or $49.95 per year (that's less than a dollar per week!) you will have full access to all fiddle lesson videos, tablature/notation, and practice MP3s. You will also have access to any expertise that I can offer on the forum and over email. I am active on this site, and I upload around one tune per week. You may also choose to "test-drive" the site by creating a free account.
