Lesson with Jim on Arkansas Traveller

Here’s a clip from a zoom lesson with my friend Jim…

He’s working on on the B part of “Arkansas Traveller.” This is a great tune for micro-practice.

Play just the first four notes until you feel your body and breath relax: E3-L2-1-3. Once this starts to flow and sound better, move on to the next four notes. This is the basic process of micro-practice.

I’ve been teaching Jim for a few years. Like most of my students, he’s become a friend. We end up spending a fair amount of time just chatting about meditation, running, health, music. He’s one of the friendliest people I know, right up there with my Dad 🙂

I’m currently giving away six thirty-minute zoom lessons. Go to the FiddleHed homepage for details

May these short clips of other students encourage you to play every day. Best to you on your fiddle journey,
