Hey Fiddle Jammers!

I hope this finds you all happy and increasingly tapped in to your creative muse.

I am sending this quick email note to all our members, outside of our normal newsletter, as I need your advice on some ideas I’m brewing on.  Your input could effect the details of how it plays out…

My idea: I’d like to change the focus of how I deliver the content on the site to an even more “results driven” format.  I’m realizing that it’s one thing to have good content for all to access… that’s “all well and good” as they say… (and many thanks to those who have sent their encouraging thumbs up)… but it is another whole level of service if I can get exactly the right content to exactly the right student so they get an efficient and specific benefit and result from it!

In the past I’ve grouped lessons together into loose “Learning Paths” for this purpose (see Learning Paths for an example of this), but I’d like to take it further.

  • I would be most grateful if you could shoot me a quick answer to any or all of the three questions below.  You can send them by replying to this email, or by clicking through to this post on the Fiddle Jam Institute website and leaving your comments there.
  1. How can the Fiddle Jam Institute serve you better?
  2. What have you checked out on the site so far?
  3. Name a few things that you would specifically like to learn and achieve in your fiddle playing (and I’ll do my very best to make that happen for you… heck I might even name the lesson after you!  :~))

Let me know your thoughts or any other concerns or critique too… I’m happy to hear it all.

Happy jams.

Very sincerely,

    I am usually too busy to search out lessons and would like more guidance from you. I have not been playing for very long so easy stuff would be better for me! Thanks.

    I think re-organizing and improving is never a bad idea. I think more specific goal oriented lesson paths would be a good move. I like your Fiddle Jam Book materials the most, as improv is what I came here for, but also think your A-toodz are kind of neat and helpful… they give me new ideas to throw in to my jams. Any chance of giving us more audio play-alongs for the A-toodz? I remember that you mentioned a Blues Violin course was in the works a while ago too. That sounds like it might be fun. Any idea when you’ll release that?

      A-toodz audio improvements are on my to-do list. The Blues Violin course got bumped a while ago as I worked on a couple other projects. I think what I’ll do is start getting the Blues songs together a few at a time for you. Baby-steps, right? Thanks for your patience.

    I have two violins that i bought a couple years ago i have also made several violins maybe 10 in the past but have never learned to play , one is a 500 dollar violin very pretty and the other is a 120 dollar violin which sounds better to my ear anyway then the most expensive . Anyways im also a guitar player and as far as learning im thinking scales and learning melodies of songs is the best way to learn , of course technique is a must do also , arpeggios is another must for doing improvisation and two note chords .
