The Beginning fiddle lessons series is designed to represent what usually takes my in-person fiddle students 6-9 months to learn. Many of the concepts in these lessons are revisited in the later more advanced lessons. The concepts in them can take years to be fully comfortable, and master.
The tablature is designed to be a cue to help you learn where the notes are on the instrument. Ultimately, I want you to become more and more dependent on your ear, so that you only use sheet music or tablature to get the tune in your head quickly.
Once the tune is in your head, I want you to work through the hard part of connecting the pitch that you hear in your head with where that pitch exists on the instrument. This is a process that I use call and response to practice with my students. It’s also a method for learning new tunes. Listen to one phrase at a time, and then play that phrase back.
