Time to have fun as we train our ears

Just in case you haven’t done this, for each exercise I’ll play something and then leave you a gap to play it back.

I’ll give you a little hint to guid you in each exercise like, “D Major scale” or “Arkansas Traveller”. I will only play ideas related to the hint. so for the

Do the exercises multiple times if necessary. Your ear may need more time with some of the ideas you hear in each round of the game.


Practice variations

  • Try to sing what you hear.
  • Try to audiate what you hear.
    • Audiation is the process of “hearing music in your head” or “mental practice”. You can harness this natural process to get better at the fiddle. Learn more in this lesson.
  • Call-and-response on your own
    • Alternate between singing and fiddling small tune phrases
    • Alternate between plucking and fiddling small tune phrases
    • Alternate between playing something in the low and high octave

    I am learning more and more every day, and am motivated to practice every day by the amazing lessons in this course.
    It bothers me that I can’t “mark complete” each section that I complete. Some have “mark complete” at the bottom, and some don’t, or maybe I don’t understand how it all works. Sometimes it takes me days of practice to complete a task (i.e. call and response has taken me a week to complete off and on, and today, as I finally complete it, there isn’t a “mark complete” at the bottom). Any advice or explanation to help me out on this?
    I am forever grateful for having stumbled across Fiddlehed on the internet! It is an amazing course, and well worth the price of the lessons!

    From Sarah-You did respond to a question like this by me, but my next question is this: are all of the percents of each lesson section in the “core lesson”, or do you have to go to other sections like note reading, bonus lessons, etc. to get the 100% in each section ( 1.1, 1.2, 1.3, etc.) or is there no 100%? Thanks, Sarah
