Peghead Nation fiddle instructor Chad Manning plays with the David Grisman Sextet, the David Grisman Bluegrass Experience, Laurie Lewis and the Right Hands, and teaches regularly at his San Francisco Bay Area studio. In this video, Chad took a break from filming his lessons in the Peghead Nation studio to play the Bill Monroe favorite “Road to Columbus” (which he also teaches in his Bluegrass Fiddle course) with Peghead Nation’s Scott Nygaard.

Hi Chad, I'm a student of yours in Beginner Fiddle series. I've been learning the violin/ Fiddle a little over a year now. I picked it up pretty fast since I read music and play guitar and Piano. One of the main problems I'm having right now is my bowing patterns. I can keep up with you on (Some) of your tunes, but a lot of times I'm bowing up while your bowing down. It's never spot on. Is there different bowing patterns that your doing? and if so can you teach a lesson on them?
