Old-Time Fiddle: The Stylings of John Morgan Salyer

  • Seman Violins 4447 Oakton Street Skokie, IL, 60076 United States (map)

Learn how to play one of John Salyer's memorable tunes in cross tuning (he referred to cross tunings as "wildcat keys"). You'll spend time on the bowing sequences and emphasis required to conjure up Salyer's sound, so this workshop is best suited for intermediate to advanced fiddlers who are comfortable learning by ear and are able to retune their instrument.

Exciting news: this workshop will be followed by a free old-time jam (banjos, mandolins, guitars, and basses are all welcome)!!
