Flatpicking Kentucky Fiddle Tune Favorites (Intermediate Guitar) with Jesse Wells

This class will meet online - an invitation to a recurring Zoom meeting will be sent by the instructor in advance of the first class meeting.

In this guitar class, we’ll focus on adapting some of the most common Kentucky fiddle tunes played at festivals and jam sessions around the world.  We'll learn tunes from fiddlers such as John Morgan Salyer, Kenny Baker, Luther Strong, Buddy Thomas, Doc Roberts, and many more.  We'll explore the common motifs and shapes that many melodies have in common to enable you to adapt your own fiddle favorites to the guitar.

Students will learn: 
  • Kentucky fiddle tunes commonly played at festivals and jam sessions
  • To improve coordination between the picking hand and the fretting hand
  • To explore the fingerboard beyond the open position
  • Scales and chord shapes to expand beyond the basic melody
Prerequisites:  Intermediate Level.  Students should be comfortable playing simple chords and melodies.  A capo will be required throughout the class.
