Our very first lesson for the fiddle. Angeline the Baker is a favorite amongst old-timey and bluegrass players alike. At festivals you'll probably hear this tune being played by little kids as you walk past their campsite and then by Chris Thile or some other maestro when you get to the stage. It's a great place for us to start because it's basic enough for beginners to play, but cool enough that you'll be jamming on it once you become a master. In this lesson, we focus on using open strings as drones that can help drive the tune. Keep on fiddlin!
