Hey there fiddler:

Welcome to the Appalachian Fiddle Journeys course.

In February or 2021, I’ll launch this as a stand-alone course with a progressive outline as well as a bundle of new lessons.

A note on the “Sawmill tuning” versions of tunes. These are designed to be played with an alternate tuning of AEAE. But all of these can be done with standard tuning (GDAE). You’ll learn more about how that works in the lessons to below.
