What Can Fiddlers Learn from Playing Mandolin?




Instructor: Rob Flax (mandolin)

Style: Across Styles (Technique) Bluegrass Blues Irish Jazz New England Oldtime Scottish Swing Western Swing World

Bring a mandolin if you want to be hands-on. The violin and the mandolin are tuned the same  so anyone who knows how to play fiddle can learn to play mandolin too! Rob will lead you through the nuts and bolts of picking up a new instrument, including left and right hand technique (and what that will do for your violin playing!), various chord voicings, and a deeper look at how to groove (on both instruments!).
