Lesson 1:

Tune up the fiddle and rosin up the bow! Kenny Kosek will have you playing your favorite tunes and jamming with friends in no time—even if you’ve never played a lick before. Within minutes you’ll be into your first tune, “Jack Of Diamonds,” learning to play the melody and then adding slides, open-string drones and bowing patterns to give it an unmistakable bluegrass flavor.

Then it’s on to classic country hoedowns: “B’ile Them Cabbage Down,” “Waterbound” and “Liberty” will introduce you to rhythm playing, melodic variations, double-stop harmonies and country-style bowing. You’ll learn tricks of the trade such as fills, intros and endings that help you get the true bluegrass fiddle sound. Kenny completes this lesson with an exploration of “Bury Me Beneath The Willow,” for which you’ll learn vibrato, slides, hammer-ons and legato bowing.

Kenny’s careful note-for-note breakdowns of each tune make learning easy. This DVD or video is the clearest and most effective way to learn the fiddle you’ll find anywhere.

Lesson 2:

Kenny Kosek continues his in-depth breakdown of the techniques that will help you become an accomplished bluegrass and country fiddler. You’ll learn to play several well-known traditional tunes, then dress them up by adding slides, blues notes, double-stop harmonies, rhythmic patterns and other essential musical elements.

Kenny teaches licks and solos in the styles of Benny Martin, Chubby Wise and other fiddle greats, as well as percussive bowing techniques, triplets, advanced harmonies and country-western style turnarounds, rolls and drones. Before long you’ll be playing bluegrass favorites "Dixon County Blues," "Pig in a Pen," "Sally Goodin" and "Roll in my Sweet Baby’s Arms," complete with variations and fancy endings. Finally, you’ll learn the most famous showstopper in bluegrass, "Orange Blossom Special," with its distinctive shuffle bowing and melodic improvisations.

This DVD/video, with its split screens and unique over-the-shoulder camera angles, will get you ready to jam with friends or start playing in a bluegrass band. It’s the perfect lesson for those who already know the basics, or have completed Kenny Kosek’s "Learning Bluegrass Fiddle 1."
