Don't mind me if I seem a bit quiet, I've just been in my Fiddle Woodshed working on new material!!!

Posted by EricBluegrassFiddle on Monday, August 25, 2014

I'm proud to say I'm starting formal lessons and am working hard on some challenging material, so, if I seem a bit quiet lately, that's pretty much why! It's time for me to get better and really learn this thing!

I think finding your niche and finding a teacher that fits it is HUGE! Great news!

thanks, we tried out a first lesson and really hit it off well. I'm really being challenged by some of the stuff he showed me on just the first lesson so, I figured it was time. Now it's time for me to get better anbd finally learn how to play this thing already

Strikes me you were doing pretty good on your own so with a bit of expert guidance to focus the work you're doing, I'm thinking some pretty cool things will start to happen. : )

Thanks, I certainly I hope so....I'm glad about taking lessons, so far right now only 1 lesson a month. We'll increase that to 2 or more by October... If I don't see any real improvement after that, might as well quit! hahahahah

Like you, I don't need weekly lessons to motivate me to practice--I just really want to improve--and I find that I always have plenty to work on with every-other-week lessons. In fact, I think it's really helpful to work on keeper tunes long-term rather than to just leave them behind for something new every week or so.

Be careful that you don't quit lessons too soon! If you're anything like me, you are pretty critical of your own playing. Feeling like you're not getting better does not mean you are not getting better!!!!!! Fiddle is sort of a "plateau" instrument. You (mostly) stay level for a while, then jump up to a new plateau. Rinse and repeat. Having a teacher and specific things to work on really helps to stay focused when you feel things aren't going well.

Keep at it! You're doing fine.
