An Introduction to Bluegrass Fiddling



Location: R33

Instructor: Pete Anick (fiddle, vocals) & Tony Watt (guitar, vocals)

Style: Bluegrass

We’ll learn “Wheel Hoss,” a standard bluegrass fiddle tune in G, and talk about all the nuances which make it sound bluegrassy. In particular, we’ll work on some “longbowing” tricks that make it easier to play at a fast clip. Tony will anchor the rhythm - look for his guided bluegrass jams and workshops throughout the rest of the weekend. Trivia: Peter Anick and Dave Reiner have played in many bands together over the years, including Hot Off the Frets ("All the notes that fit, they play").
