If you're an intermediate fiddler who has some scales under your belt, but is still not happy with how you sound when you improvise, then this is the lesson for you! In this jam-packed video you will learn the secret of the "Bluegrass/Folk" scale, and how to spice up your pentatonic scales with smokin' blues notes. Then we'll walk you through all the tricks that the pro's use to improvise, including how to play riffs and phrases, string skipping, short and long bowing, that will get you playing that "stream of notes" that everyone wants. You'll get the notation and video for five entire fiddle solos that are chock full of hot licks, and then a JamAlong section at the end of the lesson where you get to play along with a full band playing the chords as you polish these techniques. Improvisation is something you will rarely find instruction for, and this lesson raises the bar and gives you all you need to get started improvising solos tomorrow. Musical examples in this lesson are provided by guest instructor Rosalind Parducci, a Northern California fiddle maestro and teacher. Find out more about her at RosalindParducci.com
