A step-by-step course on old-time fiddling

Welcome to the No Time Like Old-time course! The emphasis is getting the proper feel of the music and learning to add variation.

Instead of building the whole course in advance, I’m making it as I go and responding to your feedback. So let me know what you think in a comment. Thanks! And I hope you thoroughly enjoy these lessons.

The beginner lessons are available to all paid subscribers. The variation lessons are available to Ultimate subscribers. Thanks for your support.
