    This is an online fiddle lesson for the country song “Go Rest High on that Mountain” by Vince Gill. I’ve wanted to teach this for a long time now, and finally got my chance during this summer’s Fiddle Camp. I hope you enjoy it!

    Gorgeous piece of music.  Am not familiar with it but sure am excited about trying to get it out of my fiddle.   These lessons are so enjoyable for me!

    Took a coupla stabs at it but, hopefully, practice will improve that sound.  The words are touching too.   Should be familiar with that tune but sure don’t recall it

    I remember when it first came out, and all the fiddlers were requesting a lesson for it. Vince Gill wrote the song, and recorded it after his older brother died of a heart attack.

    I don’t understand the lessons.  I don’t hear the melody are you only playing harmony and background?  Where is the melody lesson??  Thank you

    Hi Susan, there is no harmony on this song. The beginner lesson does come close to the melody that the singer would sing. The advanced lesson is the break that Vince Gill’s fiddle player plays on the recording. The intermediate version is a simplified version of the advanced version. Sorry for the confusion! John

    Love the song. Love the 3 different versions. I’ve finally got the intermediate doable. I am so looking forward to doing the advance version. I REALLY want to learn that fiddle break! Thanks!
