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 with the Cockman Family. 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 standard notation sheet music
4) Measure-by-measure instructional videos
5) A slow play-through video using a metronome
6) Professional MP3 jam tracks with real instruments
7) Historical tune information and lyrics
8) An interactive forum to discuss the tune
