Peghead Nation’s Old-Time Fiddle instructor Bruce Molsky was in the studio earlier this year, and recorded this solo version of Stephen Foster’s classic song, “Hard Times Come Again No More." One of Bruce’s many specialties is singing while fiddling, and he teaches this song and several others in his course, giving you exercises to get started thinking about singing with the fiddle, instruction on how to play chords behind the melody, and more. 

To learn old-time fiddle from Bruce, enroll in his Old-Time Fiddle course on Peghead Nation today. And learn clawhammer banjo from Bruce in his Wade Ward–Style Banjo course. Sign up for either course now and get your first month free with promo code "BruceM" at checkout.
