Greetings to all tremeloers out in paired string land. One of my best tremelos ever was many years ago in a studio doing some session work overdubs for the first time and I was so nervous I didn't even have to try to do a tremolo! I was later complemented on how natural it sounded.
On a less anxious "note" I'm letting everyone know that another mandolin online workshop www.concertwindow.com workshop is "rolling" around this Sunday Mar 3rd at 2 p.m. Eastern Standard time.
I'll be teaching Sam McCracken's (Alabama fiddler ) neat but slightly quirky Eighth of January in D.
The same day at noon, I'll feature on Clawhammer banjo a tune that Buddy Thomas fiddled called Georgia Row in Key of A--(not to be confused with the Uncle Charlie Osborne tune of the same name) which might make a great medley--(note to self)
Erynn Marshall has a fine fiddle tune (The Belles of Lexington) to show folks at 4 p.m., then I'll close out the day at
6 p.m. EST with a nice finger pick guitar arrangement of Ellis Hall's (W. Va. fiddler) My Little Home In West Virginia in G although he fiddled it in A I think. A more than full day of musical fun that you can tune into and see us but we can't see you. A humble 10 dollar entry fee and we usually include a recap video and offer tab to boot so additional tips are more than welcome. Look forward to Sunday and hope you will find a slot you'd like to join in. Stay relaxed but remember a little nervousness sometimes is an asset! Keep your picks alternating in the meanwhile... Carl
