In this lesson, Chad talks about his philosophy of improvising, including some advice from David Grisman. He shows you how he distills a tune, in this case “June Apple,” down to its most basic elements, so that you can start playing around with the rhythm, varying the melody, returning to the way you normally play the tune, etc. Chad also talks about the importance of listening to the musicians he’s playing with and reacting to them, and demonstrates how he reacts to the rhythms the guitar is playing.
Let Chad know what you think of the course and interact with fellow Peghead Nation fiddle students.
