Free Download - Fiddle Tunes - Basic Chords & Melodies TAB and Standard Notation, New Class Available

I've recently made available all of the lead sheets we used in the Flatpicking class that met at my home in Silver Spring. It's a free download and you can find the link to it on my web site. There are definitely some mistakes to be found, but overall I think you might find these helpful in learning some tunes. there are a few that I haven't found anywhere else that I transcribed so it's worth a look. PDF files, total download is 2MB. There are approximately 70 tunes. Link here: http://www.guitarsilverspring.com/2011/03/free-fiddle-tunes-for-fla...

 

Also, I've started a new advanced beginners' flatpicking group that still has a few openings. We meet at my home in Silver Spring, MD from 3:00-4:00 every Sunday. This is strictly for people who are just starting out in flatpicking. The focus won't be on speed for a while. Just learning tunes and how to play with other people. Superpickers will want to start a group of their own. Information here: http://www.guitarsilverspring.com/2011/01/new-group-guitar-lessons-...

 

Thanks!

Up strums

Hey FPers!Could use some advice, or just start a discussion, on the merits of strum patterns that go both up and down, versus Boom-Chuck with straight down strokes.I bring this up as I have recently broken the habit of resting my wrist on the bridge after many years of struggle.  The result is that I am faster, cleaner, and am now able to play with a heavier pick.  I now imitate the Brian Sutton model with a pinky posted to the pick guard.While this has made my speed on fiddle tunes and…See More

"I got my Wegen Bluegrass Picks and started using them - and I can really see the difference - very happy I made the switch!.  With the beveled edge, this forces me to maintain the correct grip rather than the way the medium pick was moving in…"

"I have noticed that others have shared what I have experienced - when it is a fiddle tune or lots of single string runs, I drop the pinky - but when its straight rhythm with strums - I go free hand.  I really like the way my D-28 rings out when…"

"Yes It is worth it.  I will be back and I live in Hawaii. I wish I only had a six hour drive.  Great venue of music and venders.  I really enjoyed the flat picking contest.  "
